  1. Helen and Marvin and all of your family members,

    Please know that we are thinking of each and every one of you during this very sad time. We know that the pain of losing a sibling is very powerful –however the good childhood memories last forever.

    With our deepest sympathy,

  2. Betty was a mentor to me when I worked at Farm Bureau. We tried our best to keep in touch but then life happened, work and family got in my way. I just realized the other day I did not get a Christmas card from her, I always did and then my birthday on the 6th no card. I took her phone number out of my purse today to call and wish her happy birthday, forgot to get her a card. When I called her number it said it was disconnected. I called Farm Bureau and was told she had passed away. I am so sad, I loved her. The angel she mad me along with the other things from her I will cherish. I am speedy for your loss.

  3. I still love and miss you everyday Betty. Life isn’t the same. Abby is doing great!
