Family was everything to Betty. Her family fondly knew her as Mia. She made each member of her family feel treasured. Betty also loved fellowshipping with her friends and going to Church.
Betty was known for her strong faith in God and her faith sustained her. She trusted in God with all her heart and He always provided for her. Betty had a true servant’s heart. Her favorite Bible verse was Psalm 23.
