Picture above from Betty's interview video from Wings Across America. She and Jean McCreery visited Waco and stayed in our home.  We will miss Betty's gentle smile and her sweet spirit.  

Betty's personal contri-bution to the history of the WASP included not only her service, but her consummate work: "Out of the Blue and Into History" which will forever be an important historical resource on the WASP.
