Bill, Debbie, Andrew, Chelsea and Beth so very sorry to hear about Aunt Betty. Her laugh, her smile, her love for entertaining will never be forgotten. Her faith was an integral part of her life and she truly lived by the words that...she came not to be served but to serve. Our fond memories of Aunt Betty will be cherished for many, many years. With sincerest sympathy, Kathy, Doug, Maddi and Carlee.

Bill, Debbie, Beth, Andrew and Chelsea, on behalf of Dave, Lindsay, Lukas and myself we want to express our deepest sympathy on the passing of our dear Aunt Betty. We have have shared so many wonderful family gatherings and will miss her infectious laugh and smile. Aunt Betty at every gathering took time to chat and get caught up with her Canadian nieces and our families. She taught us all how to make the best Manhattans, adding that wee bit of soda that was her special touch. She always had a story to share which began with "Listen, I gotta tell you....". She was always impeccably dressed, a great cook and hostess and kind and generous in all that she did. She was proud of her family and her relatives both in the USA and Canada. I am sure that she and Uncle Will are enjoying their Manhattan together and smiling down on all of you.
Rest in peace Aunt Betty, you will be missed!

Bill, Debbie, Beth and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Betty’s passing. She had a heart of gold. I will always have the fond childhood memories of time spent at our homes and the cottage. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Let me know if you are ever around the Clearwater area when you come to Florida. God Bless.
Love, Kim, Dave and Adam Drajem
