I worked with Betty at Kapnick Insurance and found her to be a very intelligent, hardworking and fun person to be around. She, Ann Cox and I frequently did lunch together. Although I have not seen her in recent years, I have good memories of time spent with her. My thoughts and prayers to you, Rita, and your family at this time of loss.

To Betty's family: I was so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. She was a most loving and caring woman who will be missed greatly in the St Joseph community. I got to know Betty several years ago volunteering for St Vincent Food Pantry while under her direction. She truly was the living example of our Lord's command to love others.

Dear Rita and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May you find peace in knowing that Betty is no longer suffering. She will live on in my memories as the kind, caring and spirited woman she was in life. If there are organizing committees in Heaven, I have no doubt that Betty will have matters under control in short order! My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
