Betty was the glue that held the family together and in line. So many lives were touched by her unconditional love, generosity and kindness. Our mom loved to cook (she was a GREAT cook), work in the yard and water her flowers. She was always working on crossword puzzles, scratching lotto tickets, watching Fox News (all day) and Molly B. Polka Party at 9 am on Saturdays with Dad. She loved the holidays, especially Christmas, where all the family came together. Our mom was a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt and grandmother. We will truly miss her greatly.
Pallbearers will be John Cumpian, Lee Cumpian, Justin Cumpian, Wyatt Cumpian, Travis Cumpian, Jonathan Cumpian, Jay Menchaca and Daniel Luna, Jr.
