Betty enjoyed watching game shows, loved her cats, and would find just about any excuse to go shopping! We're not quite sure how to rank the above, but her grandkids and great-grandkids were #1.

As it was Betty's wish cremation rites have been accorded.  A private gathering to commemorate her life by her family and close friends will take place at a later date. For more information please call (815) 942-5040 or visit her Memorial Tribute at
