Betty was known for her love of fashion and accessorizing! She had an eye for beauty, color, sparkle and anything peacock. She loved fashion and looking for the perfect outfit and accessories. She brought joy and inspiration to her friends with her bright outfits. Each day provided a chance for the expression of her colorful, imaginative and generous personality.
