Worked with Betty many years ago at St Francis Hospital, never a dull minute. By the time I started there, Betty was a Ward Clerk, she stayed at the Nurses Station answering the phone, helping doctors with their charts & keeping the rest of us entertained! She never missed a beat, her dry sense of humor was priceless, she could get a chuckle out of the most serious Docs. Only fond memories of this Betty Boop!
