          Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Celebration Service will be held on Saturday, May 27, 2017, at Desert Springs Lutheran Church, 685 N Caballo Rd., at 1:00 PM.  Immediately following the service, the American Legion Post 44, 1005 NM-195, Elephant Butte, NM will be hosting a reception.

    May fond memories of Betty bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)
