Dear Joanie , Rhonda and Family, We were saddened to hear the news of Aunt Betty’s passing. Both she and Uncle Danny loomed large and were a major part of those great early married years …and certainly a key part of the entire GIlbert family for their whole lives. Her vibrant smile and contagious laugh is what we remember most-Aunt Betty was the life of every party. A truly wonderful woman. Please accept our condolences and know that you are always in our hearts. Love, Nancy and Mark Gilbert
