    So sorry to hear about Aunt Betty’s passing. Your in our thoughts and prayers. I have many memories of Aunt Betty including her being the cub scout den mother when they lived on the farm east of town. We would get off the bus at the farm to work on cub scout projects.. The project that stands out in my memory from those days with Aunt Betty includes making a cutting board. I can still see my mom using it to pound out tenderloins and I think I still have that board.

    So sorry to hear about Aunt Betty. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Memories of Aunt Betty are many. One memory that stands out is Aunt Betty being my cub scout den mother when she lived east of town on the farm. We would ride the bus after school to the farm where we would work on cub scout projects. I still have the thick wood cutting board we made and can still see my mom pounding out tenderloins on it.
