Betty was one of a kind, with her perfect hair and polished nails. She collected all different kinds of dolls and knick-knacks, and had a fondness for flowers. Betty enjoyed going on adventures, from trips to the casino, to trips on the motorcycle, or anywhere she could be spending time with her loved ones.
