I spent lots of time with the family many years ago when Linda and David and I were friends in the Batavia Baptist Temple youth group. Bessie and Tom were such great examples of Christian parents. My condolences go out to the entire family. And I rejoice with Bessie to be in heaven with our Savior and with Tom!

Bessie was my first nurse manager when I graduated from nursing school. She mentored and gave me encouragement that I so needed. Worked with her for many more years at Clermont hospital. Thanks, Bessie, for your support when I needed it most. I will pray for your family in this time of loss. We all know you are in a better place. Terri Zeiser

I had the pleasure of working with Bessie at Clermont Mercy for about 15 years. She was an awesome registered nurse and manager. Her professionalism and attention to details provided an excellent example for all who knew her. Her entire family can be very proud of her. Nancy Wilson
