Dear Mary Jo, Peter and Family,
We were saddened to hear of your mother’s death. Take comfort in knowing that she is with our heavenly Father. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
With Love and sympathy,
Ellen, Dick, Meghan and Jamie & Families
The love and care you gave your mother was a wonderful tribute to the way she raised you. She showered you with love and in return she was adored and surrounded by the love all of you gave her right to the end. My heart hurts for your loss, and no words can take away the pain but know that she is at peace with God and your dad. I thank God for your Mom because she gave us the gift of you.
We have known Bettie for many years from working with her at the bank. She was not only a co-worker but a good friend who we will miss very much. She had a great personality and an even temperament which was always evident to those of us she worked with. She became an excellent supervisor of people which was demonstrated for all those years that she worked nights. Bettie could always be counted on to have smile on her face, or always had encouringing comments when they were needed the most. After her retirement a group of us continued to get together for dinner, for laughs and a good time. Bettie was respected by senior management right down to the lowest level clerk and we’re sure she is having a few good laughs in heaven with all her family and friends.
