My deepest sympathies to Betty's family. She was a lovely lady. I used to babysit Juneile for her, omg probably in the early 70's.

Betty and I were friends from the day I started working at Taylor Brown in 1976 with her in the Respiratory Therapy Dept. She was such a character that we always had fun. When we were "working" she would have me do her hair and she would duck in the bathroom if Dr. Lee stopped by. Her laugh was infectious. I will miss my dear friend. I am sorry for your loss but know that Betty was loved by all. Sincerely, Rita Cook
