Deepest sympathy to Betty's family. We have fond memories of our visits with her and Fred at Camp Comfort and at sweet corn time. Galen & Carol Menken
OH, where do I start. No one ever got one over on Aunt Betty! Nobody ever questioned where they stood with her. I will miss her. I really loved her common sense approach to life and her anecdotal responses. It was always fun to listen to her talk about all of her siblings and their shenanigans as they were growing up. (You know "back in the day when they walked to school uphill both ways", lol) I even heard a few about mom. I am so saddened that this is such a strange time so we can not get together as a family to share in your grief. But, again, Betty was never ordinary. Leave it to her to go out with a bang!! Love to all of the family and my deepest sympathy.
Rod and Julie (Sprole) Waggett and family
My sympathy to both Doris Sprole and my classmate Donnie Bangs.
Donnie & families so sorry to hear of your mom's departure during this difficult time know that others are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. God has prepared a beautiful home for her where she will be reunited with her loved ones. donna rickel dunlap
