Pat, I could remember Betty as a faithful employee of the Town of Canton for many years or a resident of Pigeon Valley when I called Bingo there, but my best memory is of her with her gloves, trash bag and pick stick coming across the hill and down Terrace Drive picking up the trash people had thrown out. She & Jack together and after he passed away, by herself. She would go all the way down to Blackwell Drive, up that busy street, which can be dangerous, to Old Clyde Hwy. and back to home on Circle Drive. It just amazed me to see her doing this. When I see all the fast food bags people have thrown out, I will think of Betty and her efforts to keep the community clean.
