My deepest sympathy to the family of Betty. She and I were classmates at Gehlen High School and before that St. Joes's. She was a wonderful person, always laughing especially in home ec and food class. I always tried to see her when home visiting with everyone. the last time I saw her she was in the care home and some of the gals from our class all went to visit and talk about the old days. She will not be forgotten. Hugs and love to all. Sue Halter Knerl
