Her mentoring made her district the top earner of the region for H&R Block where, she worked since 1993. Betty’s favorite escape was the beach, her place to retreat to soak in the sun and ocean breezes. Most of all, she loved her family. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

A celebration of life is being planned for a later time. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org), a cause she felt passionate about.
