    So sorry. Loved working with her. I’ll never forget the lessons I learned from her. She was always teaching. And her version of The Night Before Christmas won’t be topped. Prayers

    Betsy was a true friend to anyone in need – compassionate, energetic, and always positive. She inspired me, both in my healthcare career and in my retirement. I will always treasure her friendship.
