Betty was my best friend all through our school years and we have stayed in touch through the years. I will miss our weekly phone visits and visiting her in Wolfe City every time I was in town.
Kyle and Robyn, so sorry for the loss of your mother, a sweet and precious lady. She was always so thoughtful in looking in on my mother, Bea Davis, and calling her and I appreciated it. The Maples family was so special to me and was one of the reasons Wolfe City was a great place to grow up. My prayers are with you.
Sweetest lady I have ever known! Prayers for her family!
She will be missed and was the best Grandmommy.
