Betty was talented and creative. She enjoyed embroidery, fine needlework, and ceramics, among other virtuous pursuits.\r\nOur Mother would always tell us, “I know that my Redeemer lives!” That true knowledge sustained her through her life with hope, love, and abiding peace. We are grateful for the Plan of Salvation and our Savior, Jesus Christ.\r\nA funeral service will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. at the Midvale East 4th Ward located at 87 East 7100 South, Midvale, Utah, with a viewing prior from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Interment will be at the Murray City Cemetery, 5600 South Vine Street, Murray, Utah.
