After a brief illness, Betty went to be with her Lord on March 11, 2021. She was born in Auburn on April 21,1935, daughter of the late Lettie Kirkpatrick Sage and Leslie Kirkpatrick Sr.

Betty was my aunt who was my deceased mother's sister.  She was a hard worker.  She loved potato chips!  We would watch television programs together and laugh and joke around.  Yes, it is a fact; she was always smiling and would always say the best about others.  We will surely miss her presence in the world.

I had the privilege of working with Betty at TRW in Union Springs. We also rode to work together. She was the sweetest and kindest person. We had a lot of laughs along the way too. She will be deeply missed. Thoughts and prayers to the family.
