Betty represented many qualities of the Probverbs 31 woman, especially vv.27-28. She watched over her household (& others), never idle. Roland respected and adored her. Family & friends witnessed how her faith in God blessed her beyond our imagination.Betty never missed an opportunity to feed someone or offer a glass of sweet tea. She was quick to spot a need & fulfill it best she could. She loved taking care of others. It is only fitting The Lord provided her with the best caregivers at her residence , The Waterford in Smyrna, family & friends.
She will be greatly missed.
