  1. Oh, darlin’ Betty Sue…gonna miss you but SURE you are resting in peace, as you so truly deserve. We had the pleasure of meeting you 20 years ago when you moved to Iowa to live with your beloved Valerie and Brian. As a result also met so many of your wonderful family, who also accepted US as family. Being transplants from Pittsburgh that meant the world to us.
    You were such a dignified woman who always persevered and a bit reserved.. But boy, did you have a sense of humor ~ your one-liners were priceless!
