Condolence & Memory Journal

To Betty's Family,
Caring for your mother was truly an honor. We had a lot of fun over the past few years since I've been at Carlyle Place. She had a great sense of humor and adventure. Always up for something new and exciting. She was especially proud of her kids and the paths that you all have taken. Recently the arrival of the little baby was very exciting for her. I will never forget the times we spent together,Joy and laughs we shared and tears at difficult times. The memories we all shared with her will forever be in our hearts......

Lori, So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. I worked with Betty for several years and went to Vegas with her a couple of times. She so loved those slots. I have thought of her often over the years since I moved to Arizona.

Betty was such a hard worker and had the kindest heart. I worked with her for years and learned from the best. She was my role model as a nurse with a work ethic that is so rare today. She taught me so much. She loved her family so much and always shared the best stories. I was so lucky to have known her and I have so many great memories! May you Rest In Peace Betty! I always smile when I think of you ♥♥♥
