Our family expresses our very deepest condolences to Joe, Cecilia, Chris and extended familly. Betty was a woman of beautiful sprit and love that was seen in her mild manner and selfless caring way to all of who she came to know. I will always cherrish the warm memories in my high school years where she graciously opened her home to her son Joe's close friends. We will miss having Betty among us but know God will bring her and all of her loved ones together again to share the joy and peace she is with today.

With all our love and prayers,

Greg, Cindy and Family

I have many memories of Mrs. Zag during my high school years in the early 70's. With Chris being one of my best friends i was frequently at their home. My best recollections were that she was consistently kind and caring. I can't ever remember her getting angry but always remember the grace she extended to Chris and me.
Her legacy will live on for years through her amazing family.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you,
Bill Besalski

Aunt Betty has joined her brothers and sisters in heaven...I am sure they have a lot to cry about, laugh about and talk about. She is in a good place watching over us all...
