  1. My heartfelt sympathy. Betty Jo was a mild mannered, hard-working woman providing divine service to us all. She touched our lives through caring of her immediate and extended family, nurturing her friends with gestures of kindness, and always welcoming each of us with her subtle, genuine smile. I will cherish the chuckles we shared reminiscing of those before us, like Uncle Steve, or sharing a new story of one of the salty-characters we both held dear to our hearts. The Lord be with you all as you come together to cherish Betty Jo.
