Betty was a wonderful person and such a good friend to my mom. Our thoughts and prayers with the family at this time. We enjoyed helping her out at the fish dinners and will miss her.

What a bubbly spirit Betty had when I knew her at Crouse-Hinds Credit Union...but she could be tough when she had to be. If it hadn't been for her on more than one occasion, I would have wound up in a financial pickle. I remember her daughters working with their mom so many years ago. She was a great soul I was privileged to know.

Dear Colleen:

My sympathy to you, Colette and your families for the loss of your Mom. So many years have gone by, but I think of you often. I will never forget the times I was able to spend with you at your home and your grandmother's house. It is truly my fondest memories from my childhood. I will never forgive myself for hitting you in the eye with a rake...sorry. May good times and loving memories help you throught this time.
Sincerely,
Mary Brayton-Augustus

Colleen & Colette,

Please accept my deepest condolences. I have fond memories of working with your mom (and both of you too!) at many different church functions. She was always ready to lend a hand and very supportive of those around her. I will miss her.

I was very sorry to hear about your Mom. I worked with her for many years at Crouse Hinds and occasionally saw her when she came in for her meetings after she retired.

This was my first year working the fish dinners with your Mom, I had a great time with her and the rest of the group that is so devoted to giving a helping hand. They are all hard workers. Jeffrey and Jamie always enjoyed helping out too, they both looked forward to that every year. Your Mom was a wonderful person and friend to our mother. I will always be so grateful for knowing her and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. With love Jeff, Janice, Jessica, Jeffrey, and Jamie Beardsley

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother, grandmother and great grandma. I went to school with your mother and her brother. Last time I saw her was about 5 or 6 years ago when we had a picnic reunion in Tully. Betty will be remembered in my prayers.
