  7. Linda (Corwin) Moorehead

    I have know Betty for a long time. Even though I live in Ky. She would see my sister Sue and ask about me. When I was little she bought me a stuffed dog and i called it Skippy Lou. I always will remember her. Mr Fields was my teacher at Kirklin Elementary. I used to bring him big cookies. One time I brought him a real rabbit foot that my DAd had cut off when cleaning it. I remember putting perfume on it and a ribbon. I bet he thought that was pretty strange, but I do not remember him saying anything to me. Funny how we did things when we were little. I remember Mr Fields telling stories about being in the Navy. I now work at the VA hospital in Louisville, Ky. I live in Bardstown, Ky. Just a note to say Thank you Betty for being a hero to me when I was Little. Linda

    Betty was a wonderful person. Always interested in other people. My mother worked with her for a short time one Christmas season at Murphy’s. My sister and I were always watching for Betty when we went to the store because she gave us special attention.
