    I work]ed with Betty almost my entire carer with the IRS. She was the most professional person in all of her relationships with the fellow staff and co-workers. I had many occasions to require her assistance and she never said no or we can not do that. Even when it came to non work related affairs such as a retirement or Christmas party Betty and her staff were ready to help. Betty’s personality made working at the Fargo office a daily pleasant affair. You will not find a more dedicated employee who worked to make every ones job easier and never asked for credit.
