I loved her and Aunt Ruby and Uncle Jon so much and now they are together. Great memories of Bette-she was ALWAYS so nice to me and so was her Mom and Dad. I miss them all a lot! Bless Bette and bless them too!

Brooke Mullins
Today I am fondly remembering a very special woman in my life. Though she was not any blood relation to me and my brother, we have always thought of her and called her "Grandma Bette." She will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by us. We had lots of very special times with her as children at Washington Park, gardening with her in her yard and the many trips she took us on to McDonald's and Dairy Queen. As adults, she loved our children as if they were her very own great grandchildren. I am trying to find comfort in knowing she is now resting in peace in heaven. My loving thoughts are with all of her family.

Floyd & Sabra Adams
Our deepest sympathy to all the family. She was our neighbor for 35 years and was like a grandma to Travis and Brooke our children. She will be missed on North Argus. May she rest in peace now.
