  1. Dear Family of Betsy,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy. Betsy was a wonderful, holy, precious friend and will be deeply missed. Due to travel, I will be unable to attend her celebration of life but will be there in spirit & prayer.

    God bless her as she reunites with Lynn.

  2. I had the pleasure of knowing your mother, Betsy, while we were reading teachers at Charlotte. Betsy was such a kind and lovely lady. She always had a kind word and smile.
    She and Lynn enjoyed life together and did many wonderful things to make and leave this world a better place.

  3. Theresa, Tony, Marie, Margaret and Gerry — My sympathy on Betsy’s passing. Unfortunately I am unable to attend her funeral Mass tomorrow morning . She will always be in my
    thoughts and prayers. Fondly,

    Carolann Winterkorn Leonard

  4. This is such a huge loss for the family. She was a wonderful Aunt, and friend. She was very kind and loving, intelligent, and articulate. I want to thank her and Uncle Lynn for bringing Bonnie, Ray, and Steve, into our lives! What a wonderful blessing! Thank you Aunt Betsy for all that you have done for us! You will be missed! Love your niece, Kathy
