Betty was a wonderful woman and so loved by everyone at Malecki Music. She.never stopped working from the time she got there until the time she went home. She brought her faith with her everywhere she went. Her strong character and godliness touched many people. Our sympathy to all the family. We were so blessed to have her on earth and God is blessed by having her in heaven.

I worked with both Betty and her sister Carolyn many years ago at Malecki Music in Grand Rapids. She was a good friend and a good worker. My sympathy to the family, She is now with her Lord and Savior. Rudy, Orange City, Iowa.
