    Inspirational message about Bettie’s life. Betty and Charlie were the center of our expanding family. They always were visiting for birthdays,holidays,and special occasions wherever they had to go. They will be dearly missed.

    Betty was a dear, dear aunt to me and my two sisters, Elinor and Joan. She was so generous in remembering us at all our birthdays. Betty was the dear youngest sister of our mother Mildred. Every Christmas was celebrated by the Worthen (her maiden name) family and in later years, Betty and her husband Charlie often hosted the party at their home in Westwood. Betty was a wonderful cook and overly generous in her spread of great food at these gatherings. She was fun, smart and great company! We will always remember fondly our dearest Aunt Betty. God bless her.
