    Stuart and Family. Our hearts are broken for you all! Ms. Betty was the kindest and sweetest person, beautiful inside and out. I was blessed to work with her at Baptist and still visit it her after I transferred to another department. Every time I saw her or talked to her she always asked about my son, whom she had watched grow up over the last 10 years. I will always miss visiting her as much as I will miss seeing her and talking to her. We loved her dearly, always will, and will miss her greatly! God bless and we will be praying for strength and healing!

    Mr. Stuart, I was blessed beyond measure to have known and worked with Betty for 16 years at Baptist. My heart is broken for you and your family. Betty always talked about you. You could hear the love in her conversations about you. I will deeply miss her so much. It will not be the same going in and having a talk with her first thing of the mornings. She was like a sister to me, always keeping me in line up at work! So many people loved Ms. Betty.. she will be deeply missed. Praying for you and your family.

    My heart goes out to you all. I enjoyed working with Mrs. Betty at Baptist Health. She was truly a jewel to the department of scheduling…. With her attention to detail, her willing to share and most of all a listening ear. She will be truly missed.

    Mrs Betty, a beautiful woman with the kindest soul. So soft spoken and the light of Jesus shining through her. She is missed and will be missed. I met her at Baptist years ago too. I didn’t know her well, but enough to know she was so loving, helpful and kind. It broke my heart to hear of her passing for only a few. Then I thought, she’s in a better place with no evil, pain or darkness of any kind. May she enjoy Heaven. I pray your family all find peace and comfort in our Savior. God Bless you each.

  • Noell Janssen Posted January 12, 2018 6:47 PM

    Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Betty in person, I did speak with her often on the phone at work. She was such a sweet person and I was so very sorry to hear of her passing.. I will certainly miss her and hearing her sweet voice. God Bless

  • Karen and Mike Williams Posted January 15, 2018 6:49 PM

    Stuart, I am so very sorry to hear about Betty. I know we haven’t seen each other in a while but I always enjoyed our visits and going out to eat. She was such a nice lady and I know she will be missed by many. You are in my prayers.
