Betty was a lovely lady—it was my pleasure to know her. Condolences to my daughter-in-law Tonya, and to all of Betty's family. Jackie Armitage
Betty was my mom's, Shirley, best friend. Betty often told me how much she missed her. But now they are together again playing darts and having a great time. Please accept our heart felt sympathies from the Murphy family.
