  1. I felt honored to have known her. She came into my shop wanting a dress for her honored Person of theYear award and she was so gracious in letting me help her step out of her comfort zone a little 😊 she trusted everyone and made you feel important. That’s why you felt honored because she would put her faith in you. Rest In Peace sweet lady and thank you for making me feel important as you did with so many others.

  2. Betsy was one of the nicest, sweetest, hard working young woman and her smile just lit up a room. She will be missed by many. Prayers for her family.

  3. Betsy was the Best human being I’ve ever known! I love her dearly and will miss her presence here on earth. I believe she is now one of our most beautiful Angels!

  4. Very sad. Spent many years with Betsy as our IT person at work and her brother Tony.
    She always had a beautiful smile and always asked me how my kids and I were doing. I will cherish all our talks we had. See you again someday in heaven my friend. Love ya!! ❤️

  5. Denise, So very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  6. Betsy, You will be and already are being missed. You have touched so many of us here in Lowell in ways that we didn’t even realize, until you were gone. So many of us owe you such a debt of gratitude, because you were truly one of God’s Angels all the while you were just being you. That’s just who you were, which made you so likeable/loveable to all of us who knew you while you were here.
    God truly does have another Angel, who will be willing to do anything for Him and any other Angel she may meet.
    You are truly missed by so many, including Mrs. Claus and I.
    Love,
    Santa

  8. Betsy is a beautiful soul! She was loved by all and will be greatly missed! Peace, love, and comfort to all her friends and family!

  9. I didn’t personally have the honor of knowing Betsy, but I know her through a mutual dear friend, Peggy Idema, and Betsy’s mother, Denise Dommer. Words are inadequate. Lifting all who love Betsy up in prayer.

  10. I will miss hearing her sweet voice on the other end of the phone when she would call to tell me I had once again forgot to change over our back up for our computer. So many years of her keeping track of me. I will miss her and will forever treasure knowing her.

  11. Betsy – Phil 1:3! I always had great admiration for the your positive disposition, upbeat demeanor, and the joy you brought to those of us around you. The way you lived your life was convicting and inspirational to us all! Proverbs 27:17… very grateful for what I’m sure was an incomprehensible and celebratory homecoming for you, even though we miss you here!

    Matt, Tony, and family… we love you guys and are praying for you!

  12. She was loved and will be missed. Our community will not be the same without her.

    My heartfelt sympathies to her wonderful family.

    So very sorry for your loss.

  13. Betsy – a beautiful sweet soul that shined on anyone and everyone that had the privilege of knowing her. She will be dearly missed. Loving that she is now free from any pain and with her precious Lord and Savior. Continued Prayers for all her family and dear friends.

  14. The first really friendly face I met when
    I first came here. And she stayed that way every time we met thereafter .
    bye Betsy , I will smile every time I think of you

  15. I first met Betsy in the first minutes of her arrival at her first office job just following her graduation from CMU. Though I had been alerted the day before she would be starting , our branch manager was late arriving, or perhaps she was early. In any case, I was preparing to leave the office for a field appointment and hurriedly assembling the materials I needed to take. And the copier was not behaving.

    After our brief introductions, the next words she said were, “How can I help?” And help she did. She had those copies ready promptly, and with a smile handed them to me as I dashed out the door.

    I remember those details like it was yesterday. Those first few moments were the beginning of a treasured friendship. She was one of a kind.

    Rest in peace, Betsy. Thank you for being a part of my life. You helped me a better person by your example. I miss you.

  16. Betsy helped me set up my system when I opened my store. Her leadership and impact can be seen and felt and I hope we find a way to continue to honor all she has done for so many. She was an amazing role model of how to live life. I believe she entered the pearly gates as a very high ranking Angel!

    Prayers to Matt and all the Dommers, family & friends. 🙏🙏🙏

  17. This beautiful was an amazing human being! From the moment I met her, I felt I’d known her all my life! She helped me when my computer was hacked and contained some very important info in my Turbo Tax files from several years! She was smart, caring and dedicated to anything she did. She will be missed by so many. Rest In Peace Betsy and know somehow your importance to so many💜

  18. What a life well lived! Well done, good and
    faithful servant is where my mind goes. Good she was. Serve she did.
    Betsy’s heart was pure. She was kind, like no other. Her spirit was gentle. She was incredibly smart. What an influence she had on so many -not only those who met and knew her, but groups and committees she served on. I remember learning of the paved recreational trail system through Lowell and learning that it would not exist had it not been for Betsy and a few other tenacious volunteer members who fundraised and found a way to see the multiple, multi-year trail projects through. I was like…. wait… Betsy was a part of this?! I had no idea. Never in the spot light, yet a vital role of influence. So many of us have enjoyed the trails through Lowell because of Betsy’s work and dedication.
    What a tremendous loss for her family, friends, and for our entire community.
    Fly high, sweet Bets.
    Matt, Dommer family -we continue to pray for you all.

  19. I am so saddened to hear of Betsy’s passing. She was a wonderful beautiful woman who will be missed. She treated me with such kindness and was so welcoming when we would
    Visit and I enjoyed those times so much Thinking and praying for Matt and the entire family. ♥️❤️🙏🙏

  20. Prayers & Blessing for the Dommer Families and the Davidson Family.
    Honored to have called Betsy my friend.

  21. Betsy was one of my very first friends I can remember. We were pen pals before there were cell phones and computers. Life was simple. We played Barbie’s and with dolls. Our families would stay at the Dommer’s cottage and we would dig for worms and fish. We would stay up and play games and life was simple.
    It’s a shame we had to grow up and life got hard. Betsy you had to deal with more that most… but it sound like you did it with such grace.
    I wish so much time did not pass… I wish we could go back to when life was simple.
    I wish I could write you a letter again.
    So for now all I can say is until we meet again.

    To Bill, Denise and Tony, my heart is broken. So many wonderful memories I will always cherish of my childhood. Xo

    Matt although I only met you at your wedding my sympathy goes out to you. She was very lucky to have you by her side.

  22. I was one of Betsy’s Addorio clients in W Michigan for 9+ years. She was such a talented and wonderful person! Beyond her excellent support, she had a great understanding of her client’s needs and a genuine personality which made her exceptional. Betsy was always polite, professional, personable, and a joy to be around. She will be greatly missed.

  23. I didn’t know you very well, but you were such an amazing woman Betsy. You always made me smile whenever you came through the door. You made Matt a better man from the moment you met him and he inspired me to be a better man – so I thank you for your life albeit too short, I believe you lived well and loved well.
