Our good friend Betsy left this world unexpectedly Saturday, November the 7th,
She is, "finally home" with her Lord. In the 60's she was graduated from Moody, married Rodd, and together they went to Aruba as missionaries. In the 70's, she was left without a husband, and her 2 children without a father. Returning to Schroon Lake, she saw Tim and Tammy grow up, get married and give her 5 grandchildren. She became the admired grade school teacher at Mountainside Christian Academy, the greatly loved head of women's ministries at Mountainside Bible Chapel, a speech teacher for the women at the Word of Life Bible Institute, a speaker at women's conferences, an active participant in town events, and a friend to many who came to her for counsel. And yesterday, in heaven, she joined her parents, Jack and Marge Wyrtzen -- "finally home."
One of the first things that I think is who will fill the void that she leaves behind. Her children will miss her and grandchildren. I am sure her students will be effected too.
Everything can change in a blink of an eye...are we ready?
