Betty enjoyed reading, gambling, feeding and bird watching.  She enjoyed going for ride and antiquing with Jean Rutan.  All of her kids and grandkids have the crocheted and knitted hats, scarves, and mittens she made for them.  She loved to spend time at family gatherings, visiting with everyone and enjoying all the great food!  If you were a friend you were considered family.
