Betty and Joyce enjoyed many special times with mom, Eleanor. She talked about that each time I visited. Our sons and grandson, Jude got to know Betty at the nursing home. Jude especially loved playing games, eating ice cream cones with her and madking her pictures. He remembered her kisses at the door as he left. Betty had a special place within his heart as well within all of ours, will miss her. I was unable to attend but we said the 3 beautiful prayers for her. God must have greeted Betty with kisses at His door saying job well done Betty. She was a special lady who made each and everyone feel special to her too. God bless her and her family

Betty was such a wonderful person. I enjoyed getting to know her when I was her mail carrier. She always had some kind of treat waiting for me at the mailbox. I got to see her occasionally when I was Tari's mail carrier. I'm going to miss her. Now she's reunited with her Joe. Love you lots Betty. I will miss her smiling face. You have my deepest sympathy.

Hi, Hi, We we're so saddened by the news of Betty passing. She will be missed. Such a dear lady, inviting us into her life. She was such a joy. Trying to get me converted to knitting instead of crocheting. All the Bettyisms that run thru our family. Kisses at the door..Here's to you...Every party has a party pooper... the list goes on. She really enjoyed when Abby would play her violin for her. And we will miss her pushing all those snoopies on my husband Scott her mailman. Hugs to all the family!!! The Kreuser Family
