A very special “thank you” goes out to the entire staff of Piney Grove Nursing & Rehabilitation for the love and comfort given to Betty throughout her stay with them.
Betty was such a kind and giving person and always thought of others, so in honor of her contributions to various charities through the years, the family asks that memorials be made to the Kernersville Shepherd’s Center.
