Memories Timeline


  1. Family,
    I knew Betty for many years and even though we hadn’t seen each other for a while we kept
    in touch through FB and family. I loved her witty, dry sense of humor. Don and my late husband,
    Robert worked together many years at Herman Boswell Realtors. The four of us would go out on occasion. We always had good times and lots of laughs. I loved Betty as did many. She will be missed.
    Blessings and love to Don and all.

  2. Betty and I were recent friends even though I had known her for years through Kelsey and Suzanne. We could always strike up a warm conversation each time we met at family events because that’s how Betty was. When my husband , Rodney, became very ill with liver cancer, Betty contacted me weekly, sometimes more frequently. She understood the waiting, fears, inability to do more, since the recent loss of her sister to cancer. Our conversations were very personal, but never intrusive. She spoke of how life had been for her, why she was the person she was at the present, and who she wished she could be. I enjoyed being Betty’s friend because she pursued me in a gentle, kind way, genuinely concerned for me and Rodney. That was the Betty Newcomb, my recent friend.

  3. CandleImageWe became friends with Don and Betty in 1985 when they moved next door to us. Even though we moved away in 1993 we always remained friends. We were each other’s confidant, my partner in crime and we saw each other as often as possible. When we couldn’t do that, we talked on the phone about everything from our families to Betty’s favorite..politics. She’d rant and I’d listen.
    My heart goes out to our friend Don. May God watch over him during this difficult time. I will miss Betty, my forever friend.
