You have our deepest sympathy on the loss of Betty. She was always friendly, kind, & interested in others & the community. Her devotion to honoring veterans was remarkable as every year she read a tribute at the programs for veterans. She loved her family & they were very important to her. She was a Christian & lived her faith. God rest her sweet soul.

I was saddened by the news of Betty’s passing. I met Betty when my parents, Marvin and Maxine Heinrichs, moved to Grand Meadows assisted living 7 years ago. She quickly became one of their friends….and over the years became one of mine. She was a lovely lady with a beautiful smile. I will miss seeing “little Betty” when I now visit my Mom.
Rest In Peace sweet lady.
My Dear Friend Betty. She was the most sincere person I knew. When I worked at GM we grew a bond no one could take away from us. I would come on days they played bingo after I didn’t work there anymore and bring treats at there “Social Hour “. I did that until my accident. And then the Covid Stuff also kept us apart. But I never stopped thinking about her. I sent her flowers on occasions. The last while I would call her and I knew her hearing wasn’t good. But would leave messages. On Saturday you went home to your Lord and I’m sure your husband was waiting for you. Now rest my friend. Love You. Eileen Busse
