My Mom loved dogs and the family would like memorials to be donated to a local animal shelter called Noha's Hope, or the Humane Society of choice in Betty's Name.

I was so sad to hear of my Aunt Betty's passing. I loved her so much. Even though I was only 5 when she and my Uncle Glenn married, I remember walking with my mom to their place to meet her. She always had a smile on her face and she had a big heart. Always kind and always had something nice to say. When I came back home, most generally we ended up at Taco John's with Joyce and talked and laughed. She will forever hold a special place in my heart. Rest in peace Aunt you
