    I love Betty and so do all the ladies. I cannot come to the funeral due to being tested for the virus.
    I miss Betty already.

    Karen’s house at lauging, winning and of course eating

    Betty is so missed

  7. Deepest sympathy to the Sullivan family in the loss of your mother. She was such a sweet person and loved playing cards with her. She was always so excited when she would win. I will miss her and it won’t be the same without her. May your soul Rest In Peace. Karen Hanrahan

  8. Dear Cherrie, Michelle and the Sullivan family,

    I will always think of your mom when I drive past your corner house on Brookway Lane. Betty and my mom, Lee, were pretty busy raising 5 kids each in their younger years, but they struck up a nice friendship later in life. I’m glad. It was fun visiting with feisty Betty at Mary Frey’s birthday celebration. I’m grateful for the time we had to be together. May you find strength and comfort as you feel her presence within you. May she rest in God’s peace.

    With love,


  9. My husband, Jim, and I wish to express our sympathy to Betty Boop’s family. Betty enjoyed speaking with Jim on the phone when I was not available. Our group of “mature” women will miss Betty at the head of the table playing cards. I will miss her special jewelry. She had earrings for every occasion. I know she is at peace and will enjoy special seating at the Indians games—when they finally start. It was a pleasure calling Betty my friend. She was a special person.

  10. I am part of bettys card group that meets at Karen Dirienzos house
    I love Betty and so do all the ladies
    I will miss Betty
    I will always remember her laughing and having fun at our ladies nights

    God Bless you all
    Kathy Simecek
