Book of Condolences

Rebecca I am so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. My condolences to the whole family. Betty was a wonderful lady with a beautiful soul. I was fortune to have met her through my Mom. Betty had me come in and clean for her a few times during the month. I always looked forward to my time spent with her especially after I lost my own grandmother. May she Rest In Peace

Maureen and Dan QuiggDear David, Kirk, Gerry, Marlene, David and Joanne and families, Please accept our condolences on the passing of one of the finest ladies and friends we've had the pleasure of knowing. We know how much your Mom loved each and every one of you, and we know how much you will miss her. Having been Cassie's "walker" 2X per day for the past 5 1/2 years we became very close with Betty and all of her family ~ we came to consider Betty as our 2nd Mom, and Betty became an important part of our families lives too. She was there for us when our own Moms passed in 2017, and we shared so many of our special moments with her. Our son's wedding in 2017 (she got to see us all dressed up before anybody!!), the birth our first grandchild in 2018 and our second grandchild in 2018. Betty met Penelope and Preston when they were just a few weeks old! And our 2nd son's wedding this past summer. Yes, we shared so much with you Betty and we will miss you so very, very much. Please know that we will take very good care of Cassie for you .... and she will never forget you either. Sleep well our dear friend. Love and hugs, Maureen and Dan xoxo
