Her family was the most important thing in her life.

Her Christmas celebrations and gifts were legendary.
Betty was a retail manager for twelve years, after retiring she volunteered at local hospitals and the Spokane Police Department for a number of years.

To those of us who knew Betty, we will never forget the smile and the kindness, for the world lost a truly great human being.
We miss her deeply.
