|To the family of Betty S. Corby, I hated to hear
of Betty's passing. Paul Ramsey (my ex-husband)
and I used to stop and visit them and even spent a nights with them while we were there from Michigan. We had the best times with her and Jr. Corby. ohhh, she made the BEST biscuits 'gravy for breakfast. I read the Greeneville Sun on-line up here and always look at the obits first to see if I know anyone who has died and regrettably, Betty's name showed up
today. She answered the call from Jesus and "We shall see them again" is God's promise to us. May God bless your family, loved ones, and friends. Tell all hello for us and if you happen
to see Delores, tell her to send me an e-mail as I haven't talked to her in ages. Tell her not to
worry, I am not going to bite her!! haha. Thank You and God bless on this sad day.
