  1. As a childhhood friend of Betty Ann Osgood’s, I frequently visited their home near Centerville, often spending the night. I remember Mrs. Affleck as a warm and caring Mom, who always made me feel very welcome.

  2. Betty – I just learned of your Mom’s passing from our mutual friend Sally. I am so sorry for your loss. My Mom passed away in 2000 at the age of 96. I have a vague memory of going to your birthday party when we were in 2nd grade – with a couple of chicken pox and my Mom said no one would notice-they were behind my ear! I must have given it to everyone there! My brother’s memorial and guest book is also on this site.

  3. Betty and Family, I’m so sorry for your loss… I rember when she would walk to AAA and appear in the lobby have a little rest and be on her way. Just taking a little walk… Fondly, Bonnie

  4. Betty, Sorry to hear of your loss. We have you in our thoughts. She looks like a lovely woman as are you. All the best. Sal

  5. Dorothy was on Ramage 4 with my parents, Robert and Helen Smith. I visited with her whenever she was in the hall. Over the past couple of weeks she seemed very distressed and I tried to calm her down. She smiled alot at me and thanked me. What a nice lady. I will miss seeing her.

  6. My daughter, Deanna, and I will also miss seeing Dorothy’s smiling face on Ramage 4 when we visit my parents, Robert and Helen Smith. Many times she would talk quietly with my daughter and smile. What a wonderful woman. We will miss her!
