She is survived by her children and spouses (Sharon (Bob deceased) Canfield from Surprise, AZ; Susan (Thomas) Hughes from Cleveland, OH; Keith (Beth) Burgess from Columbus, OH; 7 loving grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and many faithful friends; Betty had many interests and hobbies but her greatest joy has always come from the time spent with family;
