When my Uncle Jim lived in Texas, we visited from North Carolina several times. The first time I met Betty (related to my Uncle by marriage), she made an impression on me of love, kindness and fun. Please know that I am keeping your family in my prayers and will always remember Betty's beautiful smile! 💗

Betty was a beautiful lady inside and out! She was one of the first people I met when I began teaching at Riesel, offering to help in any way she could. She was always helping at the church when we had services or as the church honored the Riesel teachers and staff every year! She will be truly missed in the community!

Betty Robert was my eighth grade teacher. She made a lasting impression on me and I appreciated her my whole life. She encouraged her students to become anything they desired through education and work. She will be sorely missed.
