Guestbook

  1. Sis was born in Henryetta, OK but lived most of her young life in Wichita Falls graduating from Wichita Falls high school in 1953. I will so miss talking to her and will never stop thinking about her and our lives together through the many years.

    In loving memory = Her brother Bob

  2. CandleImageI first meet het in the 80’s I think it was. I worked at crump Davis of Houston and we went to visit her in the Dallas office. She turned out to be a fabulous torch singer some nights. What a great soul she will be misses

  3. CandleImageI worked with Betty at RT Specialty. She had the most wonderful stories. She will be missed dearly.

  4. Betty and I had great times at conventions, England, Scotland and Rome . We worked together at Floyd West and US Risk. We were always laughing and singing.

  5. CandleImageI met Betty when I started working in Guest Relations at Traders Village. What a hoot she was! What I remember most about Betty was1) she always had on a starched shirt and pants and 2) how she made me laugh. I loved talking to her about our mutual love of traveling and reading and whenever I saw her in later years she would give me a huge hug and we’d pick up where we left. Betty was always the life of the office and she will be missed.

  6. I’m Ashlee and Kim’s friend. My grandparents died when I was young and I adopted Mimi to be my Mimi too. She always took good care of everyone. At one of my lowest points in life she gave me a roof over my head and food when I was hungry. I will forever be grateful for her. Spunky and out going. A very hard worker and dedicated to her family. She dressed classy and always kept her hair done.
