I knew Betty in Delta Votech beauty school. WavaJean Wilcox was our teacher. I had know Betty thru Earlene Rush's family, I guess, all my life. Just never like when we were in beauty school. She was so much fun. So sorry to hear of her death. I have nothing but wonderful memories of our time together.
