    We have known Betty ever since she moved to Braewild Drive, which is now over 50 years. We always enjoyed her stopping by with her Shih Tzu dogs and bringing treats for ours. Orville, you have cared for her in sickness and health and deserve special recognition for that. Sorry we missed the service at St. Mark's. God bless you.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.. My deceased husband, Phil Ursin, worked at Rockford Standard Furniture with Betty for many years.. She was a part of those years of good memories. God Bless.
