Memories Timeline


  1. I worked with Ms. Betty at Quality Mills for several years. I always enjoyed talking to her. She was such a sweet lady. The family has my deepest sympathy.

  2. Worked with Betty for years in Carthage. Loved talking to her everyday. A very special lady. Worked with her for 23 years. My condolences.

  3. Betty, our next door neighbor, was a sweetheart, and a best friend to my mom, Hannah Whitesell. She did so much for our family, and often brought us her delicious meals and desserts while we did not ask, but always devoured. She was like a second mom to me, and I love her and miss her.
