Betty was a lovely lady who enjoyed walking her small dog through the neighborhood. She was friends with my randparents and their neighbors in the Greater Eldridge Park neighborhood. I myself have know her for around 20 years or half my life as she called on me to do landscape work for her. She had a love of nature and beautiful flowers. She enjoyed engaging in discussions about the world around us. I will always remember her for her charming and pleasant manner and for entrusting her yard to me. It was an honor to have known her and I will miss her! My sincerest condolences to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.
