|September 24, 1937 - July 27, 2003|
|Betty's story is under the "Survivors" section at Betty Thornley's Story however, as a remembrance, Betty lived four years to the day from her diagnosis surviving 53 surgeries including leg amputation and paraplegic. Early in her illness, the local Indian tribe held a vigil sending three white doves to watch over her. They did a good job giving us four extra years together. At her funeral, she was remembered by her co-workers as after the service three ambulances, two squad cars , and one fire truck turned on lights and sirens for her. I went home with Heather, our granddaughter, and we noticed three white doves on the front lawn, they were there only for a few minutes then left never to be seen before or since. We took that as a sign that she was now with GOD and their job was finished. Betty will be remember this July 27th, 2004, one year since her passing.|
