Dear Mrs. Driscoll, I have so many nice memories of your beautiful home, your nicely set dining table, your delicious Irish Soda Bread. When I stayed on an overnight visit with your daughter Mary, you and your husband made me feel like a member of the family. You will be missed. Sincerely Kathleen

Dearest Mary, Your dedication, love and commitment to your beloved mother was a beautiful testament to her and her love for life and her vigor in helping others, which you shared with me many times. Even though she has been called please take comfort in knowing she will always watch over you, your sisters and your families providing guidance when you need it. You may not always be aware of it but I attest she is always present, sharing in your joys and sorrows. Even now, as you mourn the loss of her beloved soul she dries the tears you weep. She has eternal life with your beloved dad and our beloved Father in heaven now. My deepest sympathies to you all during this difficult time of transition. God Bless you all, Dana Girardi

Betty McDonald Driscoll lived a giving life of selfless sacrifice. She lived a life that was guided by the values of faith, family and a tremendous work ethic. She learned these values as a young girl in Ireland and they were her guiding principles in life. She was a caring Mother and doting Grandmother. She will be missed terribly by all who loved her.

Mary and Family, Knowing your mother through you Mary - I know she was a strong and caring lady (just for starters). It is hard to say goodbye to someone who helped define and raise you. Keep all your special memories close to your heart and lean on them In the days ahead. You are all in my thoughts and prayers... Jamie

My aunt Betty was the sweetest, kindest lady who always had a smile on her face. When ever we would visit her, she would always put on the tea and serve a lovely assortment of goodies. She would share stories of coming to this country and working at the Mount Washington Hotel. She adored her family and was proud of her daughters and grandchildren. We are happy we were able to celebrate her 90th birthday with her. She will be missed! Rest In Peace Betty with my uncle John and my mom Gretta. We love you!

We were Betty's neighbors, She was the sweetest, always stopped to say hello if we were outside with the boys when she was still doing her daily walks. She would occasionally bring treats for the boys also. Such a sweet woman, I wish I knew her better. I always enjoyed chatting with her. She will be missed in the neighborhood, for sure. Our thoughts & prayers to her family and friends. The Brouillette Family

I visited with your Mother every week at the Hair Boutique. For many years I looked forward every Friday to talk with Betty. She was a lovely, sweet lady and I will miss our weekly visits. I send my deepest sympathy to all her family.

Betty was our neighbor for over 30 years and we could not have asked for a better one. She was a joy to know. She never hesitated to help anyone in need and always had a smile on her face. Our neighborhood will never be the same again. She will be missed.

Mary, Eileen, Theresa & families, we are so sorry for your sad loss. Growing up there was always great excitement at home to see the little sticker on the airmail envelopes. We loved to see them because it meant we had news all the way from America! When I grew up, it was the same tradition for my children because the letters came to me then. Even though you were so far away, you have always been such an important part of our family. I am so glad we got to come and visit you and the girls. We now have a bond that has lasted three generations. Mammy was heartbroken when you left Redhills for America but we hope that you are reunited now. Rest in peace, Your kindness will never be forgotten. Love you always Aunt Betty from Mary, Máiréad & all of your Irish family xxx

Sincere sympathy to Mary, Eileen,Theresa and family. I met Betty for the first time in 1988 and again in 1993 when I visited herself and John on the Cape. I had heard a lot about "wee Lizzie" as my grandmother Susan used to talk about her fondly. I got such a welcome both times. I still remember her delicious blueberry pie. I will never forget her kindness. I used to look forward to chatting with her on the phone. She was always very interested in hearing how all her Irish relations were doing. She will be sadly missed by us all. Betty may you rest in peace.

Son of Susan Smith Ni Mcguinnes. Lizzie always called to see my mother every time she came home. The last time she called my mother didn’t recognize her. She had Alzheimer’s. It was so sad as my mother loved to see her. May she Rest In Peace Paddy and Mary

Dear Betty I was very happy to rent the small apartment in the basement of your house for a year after I came to Cape Cod in 1990. It allowed me time to develop my relationship with Jane, now my wife, and find a more permanent residence in Falmouth. You and John were very kind to us in many ways. I remember getting delicious baked goods on many occasions when I came back from work in the evenings. After John passed it was nice to see you from time to time over the years, either going out for dinner or just having tea and a chat. You were always very good at keeping in contact. You and John clearly have a loving family and you both must be very proud. You deserve the best and we wish you eternal peace. Jane and Richard Ridge
