Elizabeth Peacock

(Jan 2, 1953 to Feb 16, 2009)

Elizabeth “Betsy” Anne Peacock, nee Sinkleris, 56, of Riverside, died suddenly at her home on Monday, February 16th, 2009. A lifelong resident of Riverside, she graduated from Riverside High School in 1971 and attended beauty school at the Wilfred Academy.rnrnA loving wife, a devoted mother and an amazing grandmother, family was the most important thing in Betsy’s life. She was the driving force behind events, dinners and holidays and that force was compelled by unconditional love. There is nothing that she wouldn’t do for her family, her friends or anyone in need. Her creative skills provided them with everything from homemade Halloween costumes and beautiful dresses to crocheted scarves. And if any of her children stopped by, she was always ready and willing to provide a meal big enough to feed an army. To say that she just cut hair would be an incredible understatement; to sit in her chair was to get treated with love, laughter and a great deal of care.rnrnA friendship of many years blossomed into a 24 year marriage when Betsy and George “Skip” Peacock, Jr. wed. The marriage between them brought together the Peacocks and Ringers, but her motherly instincts made them a family. Their home was filled with their children: George “Toby” Peacock III (Danielle) of New Egypt, Jeremy Peacock (Jamie) of Cinnaminson, Joseph Ringer (Tara) of Cinnaminson, Amanda Ringer of Palmyra, and Rachel Peacock of Riverside. Her life was again blessed by the addition of her 5 grandchildren: Christina, Nate, Grace, Jackson, and Lauryn. Predeceased by her father, Andrew C. Sinkleris and her nephew Frank Gregory Sinkleris, Betsy is also survived by her mother Elizabeth Sinkleris and her brother, Andrew C. Sinkleris Jr. (Penny) both of Riverside along with several nieces, nephews and dear friends.rnrnCome celebrate 56 wonderful years Friday from 9 AM at Epworth United Methodist Church, Palmyra, where the Memorial Service will be at 11. Interment private. In lieu of flowers memorial gifts may be made to Autism Speaks at www.autismspeaks.org. Arrangements by the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside.

    I am so sorry for your loss….she was an absolutely amazing person that touched sooo many lives. We all looked at her with such admiration…she was what we all wanted to be. I know for me, I will have a hard time going to work everyday without my dosage of Betsy. She has been such a major influence on my life for the past 15 years. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone,always found the positive in every situation and every person. I am truley blessed to have had her in my life. Her life was cut way to short. My heart goes out to all of you, Love Renee

    Betsy was my very special friend, my confidant and my hair dresser. She was truly a wonderful, kind, fun loving and giving person who will be missed by my whole family along with her own and many, many others. She was special to all of us and we are all blessed to have been part of her life. There was nothing in her life that was more important to her than her family and I’m so glad that you all have so many wonderful memories to hang on to and to help fill the void that you are all feeling right now.Our most sincere sympathies are with you all. Sincerely and with our love, Pam Whitehouse and family

    Betsy was always a smiling face at the salon. The last time she cut my son’s hair she smiled and said that she had just cut her grandchildren’s hair the night before the same way. I am sorry for your loss.

  8. Debbie Atkinson

    Your wife, mother, daughter and grandmother was one of the most special people I have ever met. As a client of her’s for 15 years, Betsy always talked about her loving family. She loved you all very much. She was proud of you. She loved every holiday and every vacation. Keep her memory alive for her grandchildren. Model yourselves after her. Be the loving person she was. I am praying for your comfort during this tragic time of your lives. Remember the good times. Talk about her all the time. She WAS beautiful.rnrnIn Him,rnDebbie Atkinson

    I dont even know where to begin, It still didnt seem real until seeing this. I cant even begin to say how sorry I am for your loss. Betsy was honestly the nicest most caring person I ever met. Im so glad she was in my life, she really made sense of things. If you ever needed anything she would do it. She has done so much for me, and I will truly miss her. My heart goes out to her family, she was one of those people you would want for your own mom. Ill miss u bets! Love always, Tina

  10. Lisa Lipiec

    First, I’d like to say how very sorry for the loss of one of the sweetest ladies i knew. I worked with Betsy for many years at Regis. Our many talks about our children, she did my hair sometimes. I was amazed by her and her many talents. She will be sadly missed. I’ll never forget her.Heaven needed another angel. Bye Betsy, Lisa

  11. Edie Santos

    To all of Betsy’s familyrnI lovingly called Betsy BIG HAIR BETSY. She was a true friend and a inspiration to all. She had a way of making you feel really loved and special. Family was the most important thing to her. Her children will always hold a special place in my heart as they too have the same values as their mother. She loved her husband Skip. Betsy always praised him as a husband and father. My heart goes out to her family at this time. I am so glad that she was part of my life. I will forever miss & remember my friend BIG HAIR BETSY! rnWith sincere sympathy,rnEdie Santos

  12. Tim Little

    Betsey began cutting my mothers hair at the salon probably arouund the mid ’90′s. My mom so looked forward to those salon appointments because of Betsey! As my Mom became increasingly more ill, Betsey volunteered to come to my Moms house, any finally to her bedside to give my Mom the most needed only real dignity that comes with “having your hair done” and even more importantly the friendship and kindness that only Betsey could provide.My mom loved Betsey, and so did I for that. I guess my Mom said off handedly to Betsey that she wished I would have children.My Mom passed without seeing my son, but me being a long time customer of the salon, Betsey knew I had a son. Well, Besey croched the most bueatiful blue blanket for Christopher,which is still currently on his bed.The only reason Betsey can be gone is because someone else ,bigger than all of us , needs Betseys’ extra special brand of kind, sincere,and loving help.I am very sad.Our world has certainly lost one top knotch person and we are going to miss her. My sincere condolences to all her family and friends. Tim Little.

  13. Connie Andrews

    It was with shock that I read of Betsy’s passing in the newspaper this morning. I was her client for about 7 years and we talked of children, grandchildren and vacations, finding much in common, each time I was in her chair. May the Lord give you solace in this difficult time. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  14. L. Scott Stoltz

    From the heart I send my warmest thoughts of sympathy to Mrs. Sinkleris and to Betsy’s entire family. I am shocked and saddened to hear of Betsy’s sudden passing. Her and I met when we were 13 years old, and I spent three years very close to her and her parents. Through the years she and her Mom remained close to my heart. My prayers are with the family and Betsy shall always be remembered as someone I cared about deeply for many years. With deepest condolences, Scott Stoltz

  15. Ollie Leshner

    My condolences to Betsy’s family. I met Betsy at Curves in Edgewater Park about ten years ago. Besides being such a sweet, friendly person I liked Betsy’s hair and told her so. I was looking for a hairdresser at the time and of course she let me know that she was a hairdresser. I made an appointment the next day at Regis with Betsy and I am so glad I did. I’ve enjoyed our talks about friends and family and about life. I am so sorry for your loss.

  16. Barbara Weaks

    Dear Skip,rnrnI just learned of Betsy Anne’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult time. We recently had a tagic death in our family on January 23rd, our 53 year old cousin passed away suddenly. rnrnI remember working at Modern, going to lunch at the Burlington Center with Kathy Hancock and whenever Betsy was working at the salon we’d stop at the door and say a quick “HellO”. As hard as it may be at times, think of the wonderful memories I’m sure you all had as a family.rnrnKeep well and God BlessrnBarbara Weaks and family

  17. Kelly and Brian Rendino

    When someone so beautiful both inside and out is taken from her family and friends so early in life, there are no thoughts or words that can make sense of it. Betsy touched everyone who met her and made them feel loved and respected…what ever I write here only scratches the surface of what a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend Betsy was…I know I am a better person for having known Betsy and I will sorely miss her zest for life, her infectious laugh and her beautiful smile…what an amazing woman. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  18. Pam and John Rigdon

    Skip,rnrnSome family never changes no matter how far apart or how long the absence. Ron let us know about your loss and words cannot express how sorry we were to hear of Betsy’s death. Your MPI family is always here if you ever need anything because that is just the way we roll. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers always, and we are here for you if there is anything we can do to make this difficult time any easier. God’s blessings to you and all your family.rnrnJohn and Pam Rigdon

    Rachel and family,rnI’m so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a kind loving woman. When we were young, she was like a second mom to me. The first time I every came over, she made me feel just like one of her own. rnIt will be the little things that you will remember,the quiet moments,the smiles, the laughter.And although it may seem hard right now,it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again.rnMy prayers are with you all.rnWith Deepest SympathyrnAmy Edwards

    Betsy was one of the most loving and caring persons I have ever met.She welcomed my family and I with open arms. My daughter was so lucky to have her in her life. What a great mother -in-law. She will be greatly missed by all. I am saddened to know I will never see her beautiful smile, but I know God welcomed her with open arms. Betsy, I love you, and I miss you! To the family my heartfelt sympathy. rn

  22. Jennifer Haag (Raywood)

    What a heartbreak to hear of Betsy’s passing…my first actual “hairdresser”, Betsy quickly became much more then that to myself and my family over the years and I am honored to have called her a dear friend. She even came all the way to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to make my wedding party and me beautiful for my wedding day! I will forever remember and cherish how wonderful she was and my deepest sympathies go out to her family for their loss. We’ll miss you Betsy!

  23. Linda Schwear

    It will never be the same at Regis. I will miss sitting in the chair laughing and sometimes almost crying with you. How great you made me feel and always so sweet and nice. You made me love coming in to get hair done and spend the time with you. I will always miss you. your friend always Linda

  24. Joyce Mashtare

    Skip, I am so very sorry for your loss. Betsy was a beautiful woman and very sweet. Although I did not get a chance to know her very well, I know she gave you many years of happiness and joy. Please know that you are in my prayers, and I pray that God will ease your pain and give you peace that only He can give. Turn to Him, and He will not let you down.

  25. Emmy Harris

    To the Peacock and Ringer family, I am sorry for your loss.

Betsy, I will always have our fun memories, just know that i love and i will miss you everyday.

  26. Jo Ann & Katie Mc Namee

    Skip and family,rnBetsy touched my life, and everyone elses, in a way that is unforgettable. She was one of the most loving, caring, giving people that I have ever met. There was nothing that was to much for my girl when it came to helping someone else. Whether it be family, friends, co-workers or total strangers – Betsy would divide herself into a million pieces to make everyone else happy. rnBetsy cherished her family and was so very proud to share those feelings with everyone. We were all so very blessed to have her in our lives. I will miss her deeply. She took a huge piece of my heart with her, and Katie thinks she is in heaven doing the hair of angels for their prom.rnOur thoughts and prayers are truly with all of you at this time.

  27. Karen Anderson

    With my heartfelt sympathy. Betsy was a special person and touched so many lives, especially mine. Her family made her so proud! The talents she had were endless, give her a piece of material and she could make anything out of it. I had so much fun shopping for supplies and making costumes with her. I will have so many memories to cherish. When sitting in her chair to get your hair styled, you would always leave with so much more than just a new hair style. Her heart will grow on through her family.

  28. Kristal Wilson

    Betsy was such a sweet, kind-hearted & wonderful person. I feel so very blessed to have known her. I was one of Betsy’s customers for over 10 years, we shared alot of great stories throughout my time in her chair. She had such a love of her family that I feel like I know them all just by hearing her talk about them. She was a joy to know and will truly be missed.rnMy heartfelt condolences to all.

  29. John Orlick & family

    Skip,rnI am so sorry for your loss. We talked on many occasions about what is really important and I can only say that we do have these priorities in common, and any time you need to talk, or whatever, please don’t hesitate. rnPlease extend my condolences to your family and all Betsy’s loved ones.

    To Skip & Family,rnrnWe are truly sorry to hear of this sudden loss. You have our deepest condolences. Betsy was always a wonderful, open person, always speaking of all the kids as she did my hair, my husband’s or the hair of my girls. I think we enjoyed going to her while we lived in New Jersey because we always felt like a friend, not her customer. We sincerely hope that you can all celebrate the life of your wonderful mother, & wife, rather than mourn the loss. Support one another during this time. We will keep Betsy in our hearts. Fondly, Ken & Donna Baker

    Please know that the Fauver family is deeply grieved at the loss of such a beautiful person. Betsy was wonderful to our Father, she always welcomed him into her family and heart. We feel blessed for haveing had her in our lives. Betsy will be missed!

  40. Beverly Stoltz

    Skip,rnI was heartsick to learn of Betsy’s passing. Words pale at a time such as this. “I’m sorry”, just doesn’t seem like enough to convey the depth of emotions that I feel at this time. A friend of mine lost her husband this summer and someone wrote that “the world lost one of it’s bright lights the day they learned of her husband’s death”. I think that is an apt description for Betsy. Please know that you and your family are in our prayers.

  41. Valerie Alves

    I always said I wish I could be more like Betsy, she didn’t let much get her down, she always found the positive in everything, and encouraged everyone else whenever she could, especially when we didn’t think we could be encouraged.rnrn Even after having relocated to another salon last June, we remained close through our e-mails and funny e-jokes, and our occasional get togethers w/the girls having heart to hearts, a few drinks and many laughs.rnrn Just knowing she was there was a good feeling and of comfort to me and am deeply saddened she was taken from you her family and us her friends much much too soon.rnrn I too loved her and although I will miss her terribly,I will cherish the memory of her and the special friend she was.rnrnShe will always hold a very special place in my heart!rn God speed Betz!rnLove,rnValerie

  42. Valerie Alves

    I began working w/Betsy in 2001,and knew immediately when she introduced herself, shook my hand, and welcomed me to Regis,she was a special lady and she became one of my closest co-workers/friends.rnrn She had a light that shined so bright. She was young,sassy and so full of life and she was one of very few who could make me laugh so hard with her quick wit. rnrn We as co-workers have been through so much together..had many heart to hearts about the things that laid heavy on our hearts along with all the special times in our lives .rnrn I knew as well as everyone that Betsy was the one we could go to, to trust and confide in, ask advice of and it would never go beyond that.rnrn I admired her in so many ways. She is wihout a doubt one of the kindest,sweetest,giving,and most caring people I have ever met.rnrn Everyone that was fortunate enough to know her, knew she lived for her family being a wonderful mother, wife, sister,daughter,grandmother .. etc. and friend. rn

  43. Susan McGarry

    Mandy . . . I was truly shocked at the news . . . my deepest sympathies to you and your whole family. Betsy was a truly an amazing person and knew how to enjoy life, but more importantly touched the lives of all those she meet. This time is not easy but pull from her strengths to get through this tough time. Nothing can be said to make you feel any better but you can call at any time even if you just need to talk. I am sorry I can not be with you at the services.

  44. Maddy Hathaway

    Skip,rnIt’s been quite a few years since I’ve seen you when we were both at Rexam, but I was so filled with sorrow for you and your beautiful family when I heard about Betsy’s sudden death.

  47. Anne Siket

    I remember first meeting Betsy at Your Father’s Moustache, where we were employed. She was a friendly, outgoing, helpful person. She made me feel welcomed. She always talked of her family, things she was doing for the kids plays or homecoming floats. You could tell she was most proud of them.She never had a mean thing to say about anyone or anything. She always had a smile on her face no matter what may having been going on with her. I admired how she always had it together or seemed too. She was calm in the midst of chaos. She’ll be missed imensely.

  48. Larry Lawson

    Hi Skip,rnSo very sorry to hear of your loss. Just want you to know that I just paused to say a prayer for you and your loved ones during this time of sorrow.

Your family was blessed to have a wonderful and caring wife, mother, grandmother & friend and hope loving memories of her help you in the days ahead when you need a little extra comfort. Think of her often, you have a beautiful guardian angel watching over you now…rnSincerely,rnCindy

    The world lost one of its loveliest people this week. She brought joy and love to all who knew her, and there is a hole in all of our lives that could never be filled. Her memory will be an inspiration to me and my family for the rest of our lives. We feel so fortunate that God blessed us with her for 56 wonderful years before he called her home. We love you Aunt Betsy and we all miss you terribly.rnLove, Andy, Peggy, Ryan and Evan

  52. Kathy Bloomer

    I just wanted say that I am so sorry for your loss. Betsy had been doing my husband and children’s hair at Regis for many years. I enjoyed so much going to the appointments with them and talking with her. I feel like I know your family. She loved you all so much and was happy to share that with me. Just recently she was so proud showing me a picture on her cell phone of disney princess halloween costumes she had made for her granddaughters and told me how they wore them in the park on their recent trip to Disney World. She was one of the nicest people I have ever met. My family and I will truly miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. May you find peace and comfort in all your wonderful memories.

  53. Lyne Morris

    Skip, I know that saying I’m sorry won’t help, but, I am truly sorry for your loss. From what I have been reading about your wife, she sounds like a remarkable woman and I am sure that she will be sorely missed by you and your family. Remember to keep your memories of her close to your heart and perhaps over time they will help to ease the pain of her tragic passing. My guess is that God has plans for her that we do not understand. rnAll of us in the QA dept. at Tolas reach our loving arms out to you and your family.rnGod bless you all.rnSincerely, rnLyne Morris

  54. Dominic Marano

    My fondest memories of Betsy were dancing with her at weddings, events, and the coastline. She was a wonderful dancer and I told her so. I will miss her but she will be loved and in my heart forever.

  55. Bill and Linda Treusch

    fondest memeory of Besty. She was telling me of a resturant she had recently been to, and about the big salad bar they had there. Apparently they had recently installed a sneeze gard, which was proving to be more an obsticle that stood between Betsy and the food. She told me (and this is my fond memory part), how she was so hungry, and how “that” sneeze gaurd was “in the way”, that she demonstrated to me how she had her forhead pressed against the shield..! rnI to this day, get a chuckle when I think back to this memory of Besty.

  56. Tara Ringer

    I can’t begin to describe the kind of person Betsy was, let alone the kind of mother she was to me. The past 6 1/2 years of my life were truly blessed and will not be forgotten. She welcomed me into the family as if I were her own. She became an instant role model to me right from the beginning. I always admired the love she had for her family, especially Skip and her children. I wanted to be just like her and was not shy about telling her that. She was not only my mother-in-law, but my friend. From cruises and Las Vegas to hip-hop classes and family dinners, I have the best memories, all spent with her. I will miss her deeply and so will my children. She was the best mom-mom to them and it is so hard to know that she will not see them again.rn Thank you Betsy for being so wonderful, for touching so many lives, and for helping me be the person I am today. I love you!

  59. Kristi & Mary Ann Devlin

    Betsy was a wonderful woman. My mom and I started getting our hair done by Betsy about 8 years ago. When we found out Betsy suddenly passed away, we couldn’t believe it. It still just doesn’t seem real. Betsy was one of the sweetest, and kindest woman we’ll ever meet. She was more than just our hairdresser she was our friend. My mom and I always looked forward to our hair appointments with Betsy. I will always remember her friendly “Hello’s” and all our conversations about our families, shopping, and broadway plays. And joking around telling Betsy I wished she lived next door to do my hair every morning, because I could never get my hair to look as good as she could. My mom and I were blessed to have known such a great woman! She will be greatly missed, and holds a very special place in our hearts. Thank you for all the great memories Betsy! We will always remember you! Regis won’t be the same.rnOur Deepest sympathy to Betsy’s Family. rnLove Always,rnKristi & Mary Ann Devlin

    We were not only shocked, but saddened beyond words about the news of Betsy’s tragic and sudden death. Betsy was one of my dearest and closest friends. Though I moved away from Riverside, she always had a special place in my heart. Gene still remembers the first day he met her at Hooker Chemical (and what fun she was to work with) and I still remember the first day I met her in freshman English class at RHS; the beginning of a cherished and lifelong friendship. She was a shining star who will live on in the hearts of those she loved and whose lives she impacted. We grieve ourselves over her death, but even moreso for you, Skip, and also for all “the kids”, Andy and Penny, Mrs. Sinkleris, and for all her nieces, nephews and children who loved her dearly.

    It is a shock that someone so full or life and light could so suddenly leave this world. “Aunt Betsy” will always be remembered as a wonderful mother to all, a beautiful, strong woman, and a fun-loving friend. She will be missed. I loved and adored her. She passed her spirit and values to her amazing family, and my thoughts are with them. Skip, Joe, Mandy, Rachel, Beth, Aunt Penny, and all: I hope the fond memories of Betsy and the knowledge that she valued life and loved you so much will give you strength and peace.

    Mrs. Peacock filled our apartment with warmth, love and sweets for every occasion :) Though we did not live close, for the past four years she has felt like a second mother to my roommates and I, always making sure she had something for us to send back with Rachel. There is no doubt in my mind that she brought smiles and happiness to the lives of all who knew her, just as she did ours. My deepest sympathy goes out to Rachel and the whole family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Misa

    Skip and Family, rnHope you can find strength from friends and family; please know that our thoughts and prayers are truly with you. It is obvious Betsy had a huge and positive impact on your household, and also within the comuunity and beyond. Rest assured that her love, caring and thoughfulness has carried well beyond the confines of the Peacock Family and will be felt for years to come. Though there is little one can say to lesson the grief, it will come to pass you will be able to see things from a different perspective looking with fondness at the memories as well as tribulations and know that Betsy did live life! rnWith sympathy, rnGreg

    When I think of all the memories in school with Betsy, all the times I ran into her shopping, or at Regis and talking about our children and grandchildren, I feel such a void in my heart to know that I will never see her smiling face again.

  66. Pam Whitehouse

    My thoughts and prayers continue to be with all of Betsy’s family as they begin to go on with their lives. Betsy will always be with them – she will watch over all of them day and night like only Betsy could. She was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and hair dresser and although she will be missed terribly, it is not good-bye, it is just “see you later.” She will be waiting patiently for each of us as we arrive with her scissors in one hand and the blow dryer in the other and a pan of chicken enchiladas in the oven and brownies on the table, individually decorated accordingly!

  67. Robert and Rebecca Eiler

    There are no words to say how much we’ll miss “Aunt Betsy”. She’s the reason we played the conga, chicken dance, and YMCA at our wedding. Our love and support goes out to the whole Ringer/Peacock clan.

    Miss Betsy was such a great person! She always smiled and was so up-beat. My 3 year old Alexa, loved Miss Betsy and would not go anywhere else to get her bangs cut! Miss Betsy was the best brownie maker and made the neatset things for anyevent. I will never forget my towel wedding cake for my bridal shower. Miss Betsy was loved by everyone and will be greatly missed!

    Rachel and Family,rnWe’re very sorry that we could not attend the service. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of you. Rachel, your mom made all of my sports night dreams a reality my freshman year, even tho I was on crutches. She and you made me feel a part of it all. And to this day I still have the mittens she gave to me on Christmas. In time we hope that all of your happy memories will comfort you.rnrnNatasha Heaton and Mary Kuris

    Our deepest sympathy goes to all of Betsy’s family. Betsy was like another member of our family. She was always smiling and just bursting with joy and love for all of her extended family. We will always miss her.

    We just learned of Betsy’s passing today 2/27 – it was such a complete shock and we are truly speechless. Betsy has been our stylist for over 8 years. She was even kind enough to get up at 6:00 am on a Sunday and do all of the girls’ hair for our wedding back in 2002. rnrnIt was always such a treat to visit Betsy for a cut. We were always greeted with a “Hello Kelly/Mike” and “How are you doing”. She always gave our daughter a lollipop when she was getting her hair done.rnrnShe made you feel like family – she always spoke of her husband, kids & grandkids…you were the light of her life. We feel like we practically are a part of the family after hearing all of the stories through the years. rnrnFriends of ours lived down the street from her mother in Riverside so that was another connection we had with her. rnrnBesty truly was a special woman – one of the sweetest and nicest people we ever met. I always felt that her children were blessed to have such a great mother. I imagine she was the “cool mom” that all of the kids’ friends loved.rnrnShe was a beautiful soul who will be missed by more people than can be imagined. The world just won’t be the same without her. Many your many memories comfort you in your time of sorrow.rnrnMike, Kelly & Ridgeley Carman

    With my Deepest Sympathy to Mrs. Sinkleris (Betsy’s Mom), Skip, Sinkleris, Ringer,and Peacock families. I just recently learned of the loss of Betsy. I met her when she worked at Sakura’s in Mt Holly. It was not hard to be friends with her as a co-worker. She always had a smile on her face, and a beautiful personality. I bumped into her at Clover Dept.store and she told me she had become a suzy homemaker. She was just doing a little extra shopping for Christmas as she was having the Children put handprints with their names on a white tee, for Grandmom. She always went out of her way to do a little extra. When she was making Christmas Cards out with Skip, she told him, she knew me. He then told me he was dating Betsy. I knew that was a great combination that brought happiness to Betsy. I saw her after Skip had his heart attack and I was blocking traffic and we could not talk. I wish I had spent more time with her.rnI am just so shocked and heart sick, that I will never see this special friend again.rnSkip, Thank you for making Betsy happy! I will never forget her smile and laughter! God Bless You and Your Family! With condolences, rnElaine Klimkowskirn

    To: Besty’s Family,rnrnI am so sorry to hear that Betsy had passed away. I just received a phone call from Regis because I had a scheduled appointment with her tomorrow.(11 Mar). The news from Regis just knocked me off my feet; I could not believe it. I so enjoyed talking with her every month. And, when I missed an appointment she would always call me to see if I was okay. I will really miss her.rnMy deepest sympathy to her family who she loved so much. Dora Winslow
