Each Sunday that we both were at St. John's church I was so happy to see Betty, always in an aisle seat toward the front; she always had a lovely smile when I greeted her. She seemed like a gracious but reserved lady. I am glad she was able to be independent until her final year. I hope you have good memories to enjoy, and that her soul rests in peace.

Jean Rankin, a fellow St. John's parishioner
