My Deepest Sympathy to Betty's family. Sorry
I can not make it to her memorial service, but I live in Western Pa.
Beulah (Calaman) Tenerovich
My sincere sympathy to Betty's family. I was a
neighbor in West Hill and one of the twins of Gayle & Carl Mentzer. I will always remember her as a wonderful, smiling
lady when I played with Diane and Debbie. I am sure you have some wonderful memories to keep in your hearts.

To Betty's family:
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Betty was
a sweetheart, I knew her from the Carlisle Church of Christ. She will be missed by all who knew her.
You have my deepest sympathy.
Mt. Holly Church of Christ
I was very sorry to hear of Betty's passing. I
cleaned for Betty several years ago and I took her out to eat once or twice. I've occasionally driven by her house and
wondered how she was doing. May God minister peace and comfort to her family and close friends at this time.
Deb and Diane, It was a great pleasure taking
care of your mother. Betty was a real hoot, and very nice lady to work for. She will always be in my heart, as others
I have cared for in my past years. I loved her like she was my family, and Betty will always put a smile on someones face,
here and up in heaven. I told her to find my Grandparents they would be waiting for her as well as George.
Thank You for
allowing me to take care of your mother.
May she rest in peace.
I previously sent a sympathy message and left my name
and then relized you wouldn't know me unless I left my maiden name.
