She enjoyed dancing, taking a long walk and had a passion for learning new things. Over the years she became proficient at crocheting, knitting, quilting, swimming, playing the organ, playing the guitar, learning how to use her computer and how to text on her IPad. Above all else, Betty possessed a great love of books and reading for her entire life. She continued most of these activities well into her 90’s when her failing eyesight slowed her down.
Betty will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
