Betty was a good friend of my sister-inlaw Irene Springer Olson. I also remember her as a substitute teacher in the Owatonna Schools. My sincere sympathy.

I remember the first time I met Betty and Warren and how comfortable I always felt with them. Holidays at Michael and Marilynns will certainly not be the same without her! She will leave a big whole in ALL our hearts. I pray you will feel comfort and strength and peace in all the days to come. I am so sorry for your great loss.

Warren and Family: I'm so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. Betty was such a fun and special gal, and we enjoyed our 11 years of carpooling together back and forth to Claremont. It's like I know all of your kids first-hand, as we talked family on most of the trips to and from school every day. I'm sure she's in heaven knitting by now, and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. God Bless. Connie Ross
