    Aunt Betty was a wonderful and loving lady. I have many fond memories of her from when I was a child. She was an adventurous person who collected spoons from all over the country and went camping with Uncle John. I remember being awe struck of the beautiful portrait of her hanging in their home and will always remember her as kind and spirited.

    Extending my sympathy to the Murrell Family in your loss. Although I haven’t seen Betty in many years, growing up in the First Christian Church you always knew that every Sunday she would be there with her sweet smile and beautiful voice.
