Dear Family and Friends Of Betty M. Wolf We do send our deepest sympathy to you in the passing of such a nice lady and dear friend to so many. We were always touched by Betty’s big smile and her kind personality. All that knew her , will miss her from this time forward. We know love gives more than death can take from us but it is so difficult to deal with the "gone” part of one's passing. So, we hope you can dwell on memories of times shared with Betty and how she enriched all the lives she came across. Even her time with Elmer, her husband of 75 years, Family, Friends , and her Church Family were reflective of her love for her LORD. She left an example to not give up and to fight the good fight to the end. 1 Cor. 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, Who will comfort us all in our sad times of missing Betty. We feel fortunate to have known Betty and we will not forget her. May you feel God’s comfort as you honor her at the service to celebrate her life. With our love and deepest condolences, George and Wanda Stein
