Many years later, Mike and Bet returned to Fort Worth where they were excited to be closer to family and friends.
Bet had an active mind and always kept abreast of events going on around her. Family, friends and holidays were what she enjoyed most. She loved entertaining and was an inspiration to all. She will be forever loved by so many.
Bet was preceded in death by her sisters, Mary Lillian Street and Carlene Morgan.
