It was a distinct pleasure to know you when you lived here with us at Westminster Canterbury. Your spirit was a bright spot in every day you were here. Rest in peace dear friend.

My deepest and most heartfelt sympathy to Betsy and Jimmy and their families. My memories of Betty are always associated with those of her dear “Casey”, my dear “Uncie”.
They had a friendship like no other.

Betty Lane Robbins

I was saddened to learn about Aunt Betty. My sympathy goes out to the extended Mathers family. I will always remember Betty as a true gentile woman with an immense amount of knowledge to share with those around and a keen interest in all things. Such a delightful individual that I was privileged to have as an aunt.
Keeping all of you in my prayers as you remember Betty’s life .
Love to all as we have you in our thoughts and prayers
