In 1946 the family with three young children, (Arlene, Jerry and Leon) moved to Boise, Idaho. Betty raised a beautiful family in Boise and was a wonderful grandmother and great-grandmother.

They were 2 Boys in n Out, 2 Boys Inn, Charlois (Ontario), Plaza Inn (Ontario), Viking Drive In, Westside Drive In, Ice Cream Palace, Palladium Palace, Mr. Pickwick’s (Nampa), and Burger Time.

Betty touched the lives of many by being a prayer warrior and mentor. She opened her home to foreign exchange students and consistently had a crowd of many around her holiday tables. She took great pride in being a servant to mankind. Her laugh and vivacious outlook on life were her trademarks.

Betty was the last surviving charter member of Central Assembly Christian Life Center now CityHope Church.

In Betty’s own words “I have always been a gregarious and lively soul. I have been known for my quick wit, engaging smile and spirit to serve others. I am a strong Christian believing woman. I have spent a lifetime serving others with a generous soul. I am meticulous, organized, smart and friendly. I have lived by Proverbs 31 and II Timothy 1:7 has been my strength. I have led many people to Christ and I have served unabashedly. I love the human spirit….family, church friends, employees and neighbors. I have never met a stranger.”
