    I knew Betty as well as her husband Ralph when I lived in Illinois. We used to raise birds and rabbits and go to guines pig shows together. I moved to Fl. in 1981 & they were able to visit before Ralph passed. Betty and I kept in touch via e-mail and I knew she was ill but we began to loose touch as sometime had passed. I got the Xmas card I sent her returned today undeliverable- I knew then she did not beat her illness. My heart is broken- I thought if anyone could it would be her. But she is now with her beloved again. I am so sorry to her family. I wish I had know sooner. Much love to you all. Someday Betty we will be shopping again and having lunches in some wonderful places♥

    I was saddened today when something told me to check Betty’s address. I think Betty was a very special lady, I bought many love birds from her and hand fed them. I loved her many, many dolls and talents and she shared some of them with me, she will be missed. I still have two of her love birds. I will miss the tea bag in the xmas cards. RIP Selma
