Joe, Please accept my condolences on the death of your
mother. I worked with Betty for several years at Home Federal
in the "70's and we have stayed in touch over the years. She
was such a lovely and kind woman and I know she will be
greatly missed by many people. Betty came to Erwin for the
funerals of both of my parents in 2004 and 2009. I live in
Nashville so was not able to attend the service for your mother.
I am praying for strength and comfort for you and your family.

Dear Joe and Family, She was a wonderful friend. she was filled with a world of knowledge. I loved her telling stories of growing up.
I will miss her. May God bless all of you. The wonderful memories will get you through.
She is home with your Dad, that's what she wanted.
Love and Prayers, Norma Johnson & Family
My deepest sympathies.
I am so sorry to hear about Betty. I worked with her for several years at Home Federal. I apologize if I do not get to come to the receiving of friends; I had an aunt who passed away, and her funeral and burial is on Sunday afternoon. To Betty's family...you are in our thoughts and prayers. Take care.
