Sharon Aubrey Dunn My heart and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. I enjoyed growing with a good neighbor like Betty Jo. She helped take care of my Dad when he became ill with alzhymers and I thank her for being a good neighbor. Sharon Aubrey Dunn
michelle young I am so very sorry to learn of the passing of Ms. Kearney. I have known her my whole life. Im the youngest Young child from Wyatt pkwy. I truly missed seeing her the last few years when I visit my mother. Ms. Kearney was a great neighbour. Since my dad died she would take my moms trash cans to the back yard after they were emptied. That was so thoughtful and we appreciated her for helping my mother. Every spring she would remind me to get my mom red geraniums for mothers day. Ms. Kearney was an amazing woman. She was an independent women before women were independent. She was strong and always working. May she rest in peace. Please know the entire Young family are thinking of you at this sad time. We will never forget Betty Kearney.
