Old Betsy, a long-time member of the Madsen Family, finally succumbed to the 'way too old car' syndrome yesterday.
Adopted in 2000 at the age of 1, she quickly became a world traveler, frequenting the 500 mile trek to Utah and often times Arizona. She was honored to be the one who brought 4 of the 6 Madsen kids home from the hospital when they were born, endured years and years of food stains, milk spills, scratches, dents and melted crayons on her carpet,
still kept running.
The later years of Betsy's life were hard as she was frequently admitted into the car shop for broken brakes, transmission problems and flat tires.
Old Betsy loved getting a good wash and vacuum, transporting kids to sports events, spending hours and hours on the road and had a wonderful brake squeak that would turn anyone's head.
Old Betsy was so good to us and she will be missed (only a little) by her loving family.
we are looking forward to getting to know your replacement!
