We are very grateful for having the privilege of friendship with Betty and Peter.
Whether we were church,family, friends,or community,we were all touched for the better by Betty and Peter's loving,friendly,and generous natures.
We will miss Betty's Christmas cards and the pride she expressed in sharing the accomplishments of her family members.Moreover, Betty's Christmas bread( the one with the quarter buried in the loaf) will be a "tasty" memory for us of her Greek heritage and her prowess as a baker.
We are very sorry to lose Betty and for the pain of her loss to her family.

I am so sad and sorry to hear of the passing of our beautiful Elizabeth. She was such a wonderful and special part of the Dial A Ride family and the Senior Center family. I will miss her wonderful smile and infectious laugh and the way she was always dressed to the nines. I will miss her dearly! Sending a big hug to the whole family. With deep sympathy, Jane Peters
