Very sorry for your loss. I met Betty in an extension course (Belleville Area College
at WHS--an art course). God bless you all and help you through this loss. She was a very kind and helpful lady. I spoke to her many times via phone. I read of this loss on at a time too late to get to Quernheims so could not get to the visitation.

Sincerely, Nancy L. Oliver
