Here are a few pictures - from her wedding day to my grandfather, and from recent years.

After she and my grandfather retired, they spent many years traveling the world, having adventures hiking and bird watching. She even hiked the Grand Canyon in her 60s, twice, and floated down the Colorado multiple times as well!
|She was always stylish!|
When each of us grand kids was old enough, we got to spend a week with Grandma and Grandpa, alone, doing fun things with them. On my trip, we rode the steam train up to the Grand Canyon and went on hikes around Sedona, where they lived. It was a wonderful gift of time and love.

Goodbye Grandma Betty! Thank you for all the love and support you gave me over the years - I am so blessed to have known you.
