    I will miss seeing Betty sitting in front of her tv at Bradley Creek. She and I always had great conversations and I loved hearing about her life while I was doing her hair. I will miss you Betty!

    I was Betty's main caretaker at Bradley Creek before I went on maternity leave. I loved her like she was my own grandmother. We shared many moments together that I will never forget. I was just there visiting last week, and although I didn't know it was going to be goodbye, I'm glad I got to see her, I love you Betty. Praying for Montey, Donna, and the rest of the family

    I am so deeply saddened by the loss of this amazing lady. Mrs. Mantey was such a joy to care for, and I thoroughly enjoyed our visits. I will miss her, but I know her spirit lives on. Keeping Donna, Monty, and family in our prayers.

    I taught at Craig High School with Mrs. Manthey. Betty was one of the nicest persons ever. She was the smiling face of Craig High for many years.
