Roth and Gingrich families
We are very sorry to hear of Betty’s death.
Betty was a very kind and gracious lady who touched both our lives as children, teenagers and adults. We were blessed to have known her.
We are sorry we were not able to be there in person as we are in Thunder Bay.

Susan/Don, Randy/Ann and Families.

Forty-eight years ago I remember meeting your mother and was struck by the peace and love her smile radiated. It was an unique moment for me but one I am sure many others experienced over the years. Our prayers, thoughts and love are being sent to you through the beautiful memories we have of your mother.

Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, Unheard, but always near,
Still Loved, Still Missed and very dear.

Condolence from Don and Donna Moss sent on September 4, 2018

Your mother was a wonderful woman. She was a great comfort and good neighbor to Donna, especially in the early years of our marriage as Donna was thrust into the throws of a small town only knowing the Moss family.
Know she was admired and loved by many. Don and Donna Moss

Condolence from Judy Crane sent on August 31, 2018

Dear Susan/Don, Randy/Ann and families;

I am saddened at the death of your beloved mother, mother-in-law, stepmother, grandmother, great grandmother. I’ll always cherish the first day I delivered the mail as well as the newspapers. I entered Betty’s room and I mentioned that I had in my hand the ‘TAVISTOCK GAZETTE,’ now I said, how can you prove to me that you’re Betty Gingerich? That’s my picture there and this paper is also called the ‘TAVISTOCK GIZARD,’ I love it and I’ll remember it always. Your mother was a beautiful woman inside and out, I’ll certainly miss my chats with her, as well as the four of you. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you and your entire family.
