My Aunt Betty

My memory of Aunt Betty was a fun loving, smiling, easy to laugh, engaging lady. When she was with her extended Reifsnyder family, there were lots of laughs, loud voices and a lot of talking. I always looked forward to seeing her and enjoyed her company immensely! Here she is pictured with her mother & siblings. She is the tall one in the top row.
