Dear Family, You know of my love and prayers as Betty Anne is now united with Gene. I worked for 13 years on the administrative team with Gene and that meant connecting with the family in many and various ways. You have been faithful children and I have enjoyed connecting with Betty and Patty at the Center. An honor to be part of your circle of many friends. Love and prayers from the Sisters of St. Benedict as your family has kept the Benedictine spirit alive at St. Cloud Hospital and the Center. Our support. S. Colleen

Betty and I had a special bond. I only knew her a short time and she will be missed by so many. Love and prayers to the family for God's perfect peace.
