    I worked with Betty for several years at Jouett Elementary. She was my assistant in my kindergarten classroom. She always had a smile on her face and eager to help in any way that she could. She was a joy to work with. I enjoyed the stories she shared of her children and grandchildren. She spoke so highly of everyone. I will certainly miss her. May you all find peace at this difficult time.
