    Our hearts are with you during this sad time. Betty was such a special member of our extended family. She touched our lives with compassion, wisdom and great humor. “Nana” was a key cornerstone in Evan, Avery and Aarons young life. She taught them how to crawl down stairs, heard their first words and tended to their bruised knees and hearts. We always looked forward to family events and Bettys latest CBC updates! We will miss her so much. Thank you Betty for touching our lives in such a special way. Shelley, Steve, Evan, Avery, Aaron
