  1. It saddened me to hear of Betty’s passing. She was a classmate who enjoyed attending our Erwin, class of 1963, luncheons. She came to our September luncheon and she said that she planned to come to our annual Christmas luncheon in December. She reminded me that she and I could celebrate our birthdays. She loved her school friends and we loved her. We will miss seeing Betty at our dinners. My condolences to her family and friends.

  2. So sorry about the passing of my WONDERFUL FRIEND Betty Lou FRIENDS from first grade glad to know you are in HEAVEN and well LOVE JUANITA

  3. Betty adopted my family when my Mother was in the same nursing facility. She loved spending time with the Dillinghams and had a very special love for my dog Daisy. Betty loved to visit in Mother’s room and especially loved for Daisy to visit in her room and jump up on her bed — Daisy was often the highlight of Betty’s day!!
    We miss you and love you Betty.
