I'm gonna miss betty so bad. Ive I known her for prolly 32 yrs. Anytime I went over there or seen her. She had nothing but good words to say. Will be missed by many. Love you grandma betty.
My sincere condolences to the Jordan family. I wish I would have had the opportunity to meet Betty. After reading her obituary, I discovered that we were related. My great grandmother was Clara Mae Coffelt, Betty's aunt. I can clearly see that Betty was an amazing lady and lived an exceptional life. Your family will find comfort in knowing that she is now with God.
Grandma im at peace knowing you are with the rest of your Angels fly high and free you'll always be in my heart and memories
Thoughts and prayers for y'all ❤
Dear Jordan Cousins. I am so sorry you lost your Mom and Grandma. She was so kind and loving to everyone she met. I was so lucky to have her for an aunt. Love to you all.
My extended family is in my thoughts and prayers.
So sorry for your loss! Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers!
To all of Betty's family - we are so very sorry for your loss - know that our thoughts and prayers are with you - I remember so many conversations she and I had over the years and some that I'm sure I don't remember - she will be remembered always - God be with each if you, Jane and Tom
