To Betsy's dear family: I was in Women's Bible Study class with Betsy for many years in Barbara Ellis' class. Betsy was a joy to be around, so full of wit and she was so kind to everyone. Betsy always looked like she was going out, dressed to perfection and just a beautiful lady. She loved the Lord, she loved His Word, and she knew sound doctrine and would share her Godly wisdom in class. I always listened closely when she spoke. She was a very dear friend. I continued to see Betsy even after I went to another Bible Study class, as Barbara Ellis, Barbara Stone, Betsy and I would make luncheon dates to celebrate our birthdays and catch up on life. Betsy loved Maggiano's in North Park, I have many fond memories of Betsy and will miss her. She had such a beautiful smile. You were all blessed to have Betsy as your family member and I was blessed to have her as my sweet Sister in Christ. Thanks to our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, I know I will see Betsy again. That will be a joyous reunion. Debbie Debbie Morozzo, March 27, 2021
