Betty Lou lover her family and one of her greatest joys in life was cooking, baking and feeding her family which she continued to do up until recently.  She was office manager and bookkeeper for Burgess Paving and Excavating for 60 years.  She helped to make Burgess Paving what it is today.  She loved her family, her property, her home and nature, as well as being an avid horsewoman who led packhorses in the high county.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Please keep the family in your prayers.
