    Growing up I spent many a day at the Wood house with my dear friend and soul sister Kathy and of course her rowdy brothers. Betty was like a second mom to me and a wonderful woman, she will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her.

    I always had a lot of respect for Betty, Both as a kid and adult. She enjoyed a good joke and a good laugh. Always straight and honest. Called it like she saw it. I recall being 9 or 10 years old and asking her for a light for my cigarette, which she obliged without hesitation. She pulled out her lighter. What she didn’t realize was it was a chocolate cigarette but she never batted an eye. Great lady. Best wishes and condolences from us both. George and Debbie Jobb
