Betty was an avid lover of music, flowers, birds, fishing, traveling and painting. She loved to cook, entertain and take care of others. She helped organize the annual Camden High School reunion for years. She never met a stranger and would be your friend for life. With a heart bigger than life she will be missed by all.
