Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays at Wonder Lake were among my best childhood memories and Aunt Betty made them extra special. She worked hard to make sure a house full of kids enjoyed themselves. You never wanted to leave and insisted that mom and dad let you stay a little longer. And with the help of Grandma's baking skills, we may agree that it is here where the legendary Schnookie made its debut. I will surely miss you Aunt Betty.

Mom was a winner. Kind, patient, wise. After dad passed I'd drive her to Florida every winter. Two days in the car together is when I really realized what a pleasure it was to be with her. I'm going to miss her.

I’m so sorry to hear that you lost your mom. I wish you strength and peace in this difficult time. You were fortunate to have her as long as you did and share those drives. Peace to you.

Mom did such a lot for us when we were small. We always had breakfast,lunch and dinner and clean clothes to wear, thanks to her. I didn't think much of it at the time (who does) but now I realize how much work it was.

I'm the daughter of Florence Jackson-Phillips. I met your mom and I know your dad and mom were at my wedding, many years ago. Mom always spoke kindly and respectfully about your mom and dad. I remember the "club" meetings. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Time marches on and we hold tight to our memories. Mom passed in 2004, dad in 1985, my younger sister in 2014. I know you will always have your memories, but it still is difficult. SINCERELY, Terry Phillips-Stortz
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am beyond sad for the Sullivan Family. They lost yet another amazing family member but knowing Betty is with the love of her life, Bill, makes it a little easier. Not only did they lose someone they loved but any of us who have been around here for so very many years lost a Wonder Lake Family Member as well. Betty and Bill always had smiles on their faces and were ready to help anyone that needed it. The older I get the more Wonder Lakers we lose that I have thought of as family. Even if I didn't know them well, we always knew the name and faces. I guess it comes with our age. God Bless you all. Thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time.

Mom was always comforting and supporting. I remember when we kids went with mom to the Piggly Wiggly in Woodstock. Before we went in, Mom would tell us, "I expect you kids to behave." Low and behold, we did. For the most part.
