Family and animals were Betty’s passion and delight. She loved spending time with her siblings, children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. She was loved by all animals and she loved them back just as much, from birds flying into her house and eating from her hand, to animals standing at her back door to be fed. She was an avid supporter of the SPCA.
