So very sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. May the lord wrap you all in his arms during this difficult time.
Angela Rutledge Haynes

Dear Family, I’m so sad to hear of Betty’s passing. She was always cheerful and happy to see us when our group from Grace Baptist Church would hold our weekly service. I believe she must have been adored by her grand-children and she will be deeply missed. Our prayers go out to your family at this time.

My prayers are with you. Betty worked for me at my dress store in Reidsville 25 years ago. She was a lovely woman and wonderful to work with and was a great friend. You have been honored to have her as part of your family. May God bless you.
