For Betty Canfield: As one of very few Minicks left, I want to express my family's heartfelt grief at Betty's passing. My parents, Bob and Eva Minick, enjoyed so many happy and memorable times with Betty and Cecil. I remember several times that all four of them would visit me and my family when they were visiting from Colorado. We know you are in a better place, Betty, and we hope to see you there one day, too. Kay Minick Staples for Eva L. Minick and my three children and myself.

Cecil Canfield and girls.
was so shocked to hear of Betty's passing, after just seeing and visiting you both last week. i never guessed she was so ill, by our conversation and laughs. Times like these make one remember all the fun times we had when the girls were in 4-H, and we all did so many things together. Sending our best to all of you, may God Bless and we will meet again.

For Betty Canfield....To Uncle Cecil, Patty, Dot & Pete, There are no words to express the sense of loss I feel over Aunt Betty's passing. She always had a joke to tell and had a great laugh! She carted me off to watch all of you play ball and sometimes I got to use Dody's glove and go to outfield! Aunt Betty would bring her crocheting out to the house and her and mom would visit for the afternoon crocheting their projects. She taught me how to chain and I was hooked. As a little kid about 6 or 7, I ran away from home a couple times, I was going to Aunt Bettys cause she had "waffles" for breakfast and I was sick of Oatmeal! We had some great times with the horses too!I have a lot of "first time" experiences that were all positive because of your family. Many wonderful memories. I love you all and wish I could be there. My heart and thoughts are with you. I Love You "Uncle Betty and Aunt Sisel" :)
