Betty and my mother were first cousins and were very close while growing up in Phoenix. Betty lived a good, helpful and honorable life. We will remember her fondly and we know she is in Heaven.
Rest in peace Aunt Betty. I will never forget you
Aunt Betty is survived by many nieces and nephews. Sadly, she was the last survivor of my dad’s sibling–another era has passed.
