Betty Hansen, like Ann Palmer--- was another Douglas School alum I went through all the grades with along with Ann Palmer. In sixth grade three boys and three girls decided to do the last trick or treating of their childhood (since it was not considered good manners to trick or treat after grade school unlike those of today who never stop)  together and cover a large area around the Douglas school filling full pillowcases full of candy.  Betty knew how to get into the Charleston apartments and dash from apartment to apartment getting large candy bars and expensive candy.  Even though the residents wondered how we passed security, they were glad they had trick or treaters to fete. 

At Betty's house, her mother insisted that we stop our marathon long enough to load up on hot chocolate, Chile, and doughnuts.  The trick or treating ended well past 10 pm after the last porch light went out on Fenway lane. 

Betty went to the movies with the gang from Douglas and was known to buy as many as six dill pickles to eat during the movie.   One time a dill pickle fell off her stick in the balcony of the Utah theater and dropped down and landed right in the Coca Cola drink of someone below.  We decided it would be best to change seats in the balcony in case someone came up.  They did come up, but only looked for the offender in the seats directly above the victim.  No one else in the balcony knew they were looking for us.  So no one said anything.  Betty, you were one of a kind!!!!  Since it was an accident and no one was hurt,  we didn't feel it our moral obligation present ourselves to management and confess.

Betty always seemed so happy when I saw her on the playground at Douglas. Peace.
