Jamie, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember her stopping in at the shelter when I was first there. We had wonderful visits and she became one of my favorites. She was always so sweet and she loved talking about the animals.

So sad to read about Betty. She was a delight at the Langlade Abstract Company. Most important, I always enjoyed her coming to Parent-Teacher
Conferences. She was always so proud of you, Cheryl and Jamie! May all your happy memories with her bring you peace and comfort! God bless you and your families!
Deepest Sympathy to Betty's family. She was my aunt Nancy's sister. Always enjoyed our encounters over the years. Such a kind gentle person. Blessings and a hug.
Sorry to hear about your mom. My prayers are with you.
Betty was such a kind lady, a good friend to our family, and I had the pleasure of working with her also. Condolences from the Schroepfer Family.
