Condolence from Jeff Crouse on January 29th, 2019 1:22 am

Hello Mankowski’s,

This from Jeff Crouse and the Crouse family. So sorry to hear of this tremendous loss. Betty was my Confirmation sponsor, along with Bob, in the late 1970s from Kingman. Those were rosy, golden years. I would like to think that our loving parents, Carolyn and Dennis, were among those who helped to assist her as she entered heaven.

Hi Mankowski’s,

Lanna and I are sorry sorry to hear of Betty’s death. We always enjoyed having Betty in our office as she was always so full of energy and excited about the next trip to the tennis club on the beach in La Jolla. Bob, you and Betty were the best !!!! We are so saddened for you and your family, she had a great life and family. She will be missed. Rick and Lanna Nelson
