This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Betty Heitman who was born in Missouri on April 15, 1931 to Alice Irene (Covey) Farris and Clarence Marshall Farris and passed away on July 18, 2005 at North Kansas City Hospital at the age of 74. We will remember her forever. She was a wonderful grandmother to me - I couldn't have asked for a better one. I'm thankful to have had her in my life. I only wish that my children would have had more time to enjoy her company. She was really something special! She may not have been perfect, but think about it...is anyone? If anyone has anything they would like to contribute please do so. I am not completely done with the site, so please don't be upset if you do not see your picture,name etc. yet. It just takes a lot of work to get everything right. EVERYONE grandma knew & loved is welcome to offer pieces to be added to the site. NOTE: Remember too, that a unique way to honor & remember my grandma would be to go into "memorial candles" and 'light' a candle for her.
On butterfly wings, Wings all my own, To you I am gone, But now I am home.

Bettys Love Betty Marie Heitman was only 36 when her beloved Jake passed away leaving her with 6 children to raise on her own,including one who was disabled. Betty did her best & tried her hardest to provide for little Delores, Gene, Patrick, Michael, Daniel & Alesia. Once the kids grew up and had their own little ones, Betty also took them in. Becoming the greatest grandmother ever was no chore for her. She helped to raise her grandaughters Michelle, Amy, Melissa, and Cassie and one grandson Jeffrey. Betty loved those kids... and you could certainly tell. When the grandkids had all grown up she took in new "babies." Her little dogs meant the world to her. Betty was preceded in her death by not only her husband,Jake, in 1968, but also by her brothers, Jimmy and Michael and her sisters Becky Newsome, Elva lee and Marybelle.
