I will truely miss my favorite Aunt Betty. Derald (brother) was my father. Even though we moved away over 40 years ago to Seattle, she always kept in touch with us. She was a family "rock" when my dad passed and when our grandfather Otto died as well. She was a warm and very loving person and will be truely missed.

Our love and prayers go out to all of her family and those she touched their lives in a very special way.

I will miss my Aunt Betty. Even though we were long separated by great distances, the telephone always kept Aunt Betty and I connected, especially after my mom passed away in 2007. Aunt Betty was always so excited to hear about our family and we recently had a great conversation about the latest adventure just a couple of months ago.

My deepest sympathies to my Uncle Winton and cousins Brenda, Bryan, Brad, Beverly, Bonnie and their families.

All our love and prayers,

Keith, Beth, Caitlin, and Abby Prilliman
