Betty was a great friend to me and also my husband for many years. We worked with her back when the facility was called Technicon. She and Jimmy were so much fun to be around at our many dinners and things we went to together. She made you feel like you were a part of her family and Jimmy did too. We will always fondly remember her. She made us laugh sometimes when she fiercely defended an issue she believed in but was a very staunch supporter of us younger workers. We looked up to her and asked for advice from her and she listened to us when we had problems. She will forever be our friend. Karen you had a wonderful set of parents to grow up with. We loved her dearly.

Betty and I worked together years ago and she made work seem more like a family gathering.  Her wit and wisdom helped create an atmosphere where we could all be our best.  I will forever be thankful that I had the good fortune to know and work with her.  Rest In Peace Betty.  I will never forget you.
