Betty was one of my most loved customer when I was working for Walgreens. She was always super sweet and kind. When I retired she was one of the few customers I really missed. Rest in peace Betty.
Thank you so much for such kind words! My Mother always loved going in there even to just look around. I appreciate you taking such good care of her throughout the years.

Thank you so much!
Phil & Becky
Betty is missed by me for sure. She was ALWAYS so kind to me and made sure I knew she had me in her prayers always.
her light still shines here for all who knew her kindness.
Our Mother had a very strong faith! She certainly will be missed by many. Please be assured that she is still beside us everyday. We all need to pray as much as she did!
Betty was always Super nice to me when I’d go to their home on Mascoutah Rd. to hang out with Becky! I’m talking way back when we we’re in grade school! 40++ years!
Many great memories with you (Becky) and your family!
Can’t imagine how you must feel.
Much love and Sympathy
My Mother enjoyed having people over very much! There are lots of fun memories from those days. It will be difficult going forward but I know my Mother is where she wants to be!
Thank you so much for you comment it truly means a lot!!
So very sorry about the passing of Aunt Betty, girls. I always loved to go to Aunt Betty’s house, and especially spending the night as a young girl. While there, we would have popcorn in the evening while watching Elvis movies. I remember watching her meticulous ironing clothes, I think of her while doing my own ironing, trying to do just as nice of job. She taught me structor, with the chore chart and having to take turns doing the dishes. When she put the dishes in the sink she would always put any sharp knives or silverware on the right side of the sink, so you would know to be careful to not cut yourself. To this day I put the knives and silverware on the right side of the sink, I’ve also taught my daughter the same thing. I would observe Aunt Betty while she did her housework, always having a very tidy home.
Aunt Betty will be missed.
Your comments really made me laugh! I know all of those traits have been passed on to myself as well. Even the times I would get so frustrated because I just wanted to get the job done. My Mother enjoyed being a Mother, Aunt, Sister and Friend to all. She spoke often of the days our kitchen table was full and everyone telling her how they loved her food. Thank you for your message and she is still there for all of us!!
