I'm saddened to hear about Betty. I worked with her at Elder-Beerman, and what an inspiration she was. I loved to listen to her tell stories about the early years at Sears.
I remember a time that I asked her why she was limping and she told me that her truck had backed over her and I thought, boy she likes to tell stories, should I laugh. The laugh was on me, of course.
