Condolence: Betty was the first person I met when I moved to Westerville in 1973. She and I became quick friends, raising our children together on Vickers Drive during the early years. She and Jim were wonderful, caring friends. RIP, Betty❤️

Condolence: I worked with and for BJ many years.
But the best part was working with her at Whittier Elementary. She was very caring and gave every student patient, specialized care while teaching what they needed. She had my daughter for 6th grade and gave her the love and attention she needed at that time.
Thank you BJ for all you did for us and the friendship we had.
My deepest sympathy to her family and friends. The world lost a good person, but Heaven gained an Angel.

Condolence: I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Devery was my 6th grade teacher at Whittier in Westerville. My mother, Martha Kinkead, taught on the same staff with her for many years at Whittier. I had the pleasure of substitute teaching for and with her early in my teaching career (mid 90's at Hawthorne Elementary). She was an amazing teacher and a wonderful person with a beautiful, fun, endearing personality. She will be deeply missed. My mother, Martha Kinkead, sends her deepest condolences, too.

Condolence: I met BJ (as I knew her) in 8th grade when she befriended me, the lonely "new girl" at school. We maintained that friendship throughout high school and college and then lost touch for many years However, I never forgot her and will not--she was truly beautiful, inside and out.
