Betty was my first cousin and I loved her and her entire family. I lived on the street obove her too–right beside Tom & Jerry Ault! What I remember most is her driving to Shadyside to have Bible study with my mother, Marion Arno. I will see Betty again because she knew knows Jesus!

I first met Betty about two years ago when she came to Connections to apply for the senior program. She was funny and sweet and we hit it off right away. These past few weeks she and a couple of other ladies would meet on Tuesday evening to learn to quilt. Betty was so enthusiastic about learning to sew and shared with me how to crochet a scarf. I will miss her terribly. I wished we would of had more time to share. Rest in peace Betty. My condolences to the family.

So sorry to read about Betty in the paper, I saw her a few weeks ago and we talked about the good old days when we worked together @ the old Hab.Center and we rode to work together…she was a wonderful person and when she met Andy….he was the love of her life! She enjoyed talking about her sons….all of you will be in my thoughts and prayers…you had a wonderful Mother!

To the family of Betty Shultz-Serafin,

My deepest sympathy to each of you at this difficult time in your life. I have known Betty since I was Stanley’s teacher in the second grade. She was a wonderful parent and became a great friend to me over the years. I will miss her smiling face and our wonderful conversations. She was always very fun-loving and enjoyable. May God give each of you the strength to face the difficult days ahead knowing that Betty is resting in the arms of our heavenly Father.

With our deepest sympathy,

Idora and Major Kimbro
