So happy to have been able to know her. Such a sweet spirit. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family.

Anthony & Laura Shirek on Mar 4, 2018

CandleLynn, Steve and the whole Ferschweiler family, we are so sorry to hear of Bette's passing. We first met her when she would visit Steve & Dawn. She was very kind and gentle and always interested in what was going on with our family. Anthony remembers the time years ago when he and Steve aerated Lynn & Bette's yard and she was so appreciative and thankful that Anthony said she invited you guys in for snacks and beers. Our deepest sympathies to the Ferschweiler family!
