Betty Mae Burdick


Betty was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and dear friend to many. She loved singing from the time she was a little girl, when her father would play the accordion while she sang. When she was older, she went to church to sing; her favorite song was Amazing Grace.

Betty was very talented with all things crafty. She loved to knit and sew. She made sweaters and mittens for her kids and grandkids. She won many ribbons for things she made and entered into the fair.

One of the things Betty will be dearly remembered for was her amazing baking skills. Her favorite thing to bake were pies, especially her amazing Dutch apple pie.
