They remained in Stillwater, making many friends. They shared a love of traveling and RV camping and spent many happy winters in McAllen, TX.
Betty also enjoyed music and was herself, a talented pianist and singer. She loved to knit and crochet and was an excellent cook. Her many friends knew her for her gentle kindness and selfless ways.
