My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. May your time together be filled with joyful stories of family and a wonderful life lived well.

Kathy and family,

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I recently saw this and thought it was beautiful – may it bring you comfort.
God looked around his garden,
And saw an empty space,
He then looked down upon the Earth,
And saw your tired face,
It broke our hearts to lose you
…But you didn’t go alone
Part of us went with you
The day God called you home
God put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.

My love and prayers for all the Gibboney offspring.

Betty was one of the most loved people I have ever known.

As a member of our Middletown bridge club, started in the early 50’s, she was always ready with funny story and a spontaneous laugh. And she could laugh at herself.
What fun we had making up poems for the awards ceremony on our clubs yearly outing. We all would laugh until the tears came.

Happy memories are always associated with Betty. Her spirit will live forever.

Please accept our sincere condolences. Betty and her husband ‘Gib’ were dear friends of my parents, Anne and Bud Rodenberg, for several years. They always spoke highly of Betty and Gib, and their lives were more rich and enjoyable because of their friendship.
