 My sympathy to her family, she & my sister, Diane Berlin became best of friends while going through dialysis in Wadsworth. Betsys shining personality helped Diane adjust to the health issues they both shared; the two of them became "best of friends" to say the least. Really more like sisters, and now they can
hug, talk, laugh and reunite in their heavenly home. Of course Fred, will be there too. Knowing these two gals, he won't be able to get a word in for awhile.
May she rest in God's hands and home now.

Betsy was such a positive and delightful person!  She never complained and she would always make you laugh.  I am so thankful she is now with her husband and daughter.  Betsy will be missed.  I feel blessed to have known her.
