I never saw Betty without a smile on her face, or a quick laugh, in the many times we passed one another, over the years, in the halls of CMC. She was well-liked & well-respected. As I approach my 30th yr @ CMC, I can appreciate the toll it took on her. May she rest in peace, healed in the grace of God. My sympathy to the family. I know she will be greatly missed.

I had the privilege of working with Betty for over 25 years in the Urology Dept. She assisted me in surgery and and was an outstanding nurse, many times knowing what I needed before I did. She always brought a sense of calm to the operating room. I was fortunate to have had her with me.
Ron is to be commended for the care he gave to Betty in her final years.
We love and will miss you Betty. Rest In Peace.
