Betty Lou (Haylett) Hilton, age 84, of Redford left her earthly family on Saturday, June 27, 2020, and joined her husband, Max Hilton, in Heaven.

She was born to Forrest and Gladys (Hutchins) Haylett on August 9, 1935, in Bethel Township. Betty and Max were married on January 9, 1954, and enjoyed a beautiful 62 year marriage. She was a beautiful, independent woman who enjoyed going to estate sales and loved nature (especially butterflies). But, her true passion was her grandchildren. Betty’s selfless heart was always filled with the love of her family and friends. She will be dearly missed.

Beloved mother of Sue Zincke (Pat Milliken ), Sandy (Walt) Grysko , Debbie (Tim) Nester; nine grandchildren, Walter John (Jen) Grysko, Max Grysko, Joe Grysko, Tom (Cal) Nester, Brad (Jen) Nester, Shaun (Courtney) Nester, Dave (Kim) Nester, Brett Nester, Shelby Nester; great-grandmother of 10 and great-great grandmother of 1; sister of Jake (Cora Jean) Haylett; many loving nieces and nephews; and dear companion of Bill Fifer.
Betty is preceded in death by her husband Max, grandson Michael Grysko, son-in-law Bill Zincke and siblings: Velma, Olen, Alice, Anna Mae, and Max (Mike) Haylett.

It was Betty’s wishes to be cremated and an intimate family service was held. At Betty’s request, if memorials are chosen, please make checks payable to DCAA with a memo line of “Michael Grysko Scholarship” (in memory of her grandson) 1055 Silvery Lane, Dearborn, MI 48128.

My rambling for today...
85 Birthday wishes

So sad was I when I first awoke;
Deciding today not a word to be spoke.

Cause 85 years young was to be my mother;
But the angels wouldn’t have it, her birthday would be for another.

Then a cardinal lit at the tip-top of a tree;
The brightest of red that I ever did see!

Yes that cardinal was certainly my beautiful son;
Coming from Heaven to remind me and everyone...

That although we cannot see them just as they were;
They remain with us still sometimes wearing feathers or fur.

But here by our side they are and will always be;
Providing us comfort and support for you and for me.

And just like that my sadness waned;
Not altogether gone, but a smile still came.

So today Mom’s birthday celebration may be very different;
But we know her love from Heaven is certainly sent!

And happy birthday will be sung and we’ll eat bumpy cake;
Knowing that another beautiful memory Mom will make!!

Happiest of birthdays to you angel mom!

Hi Mom... missing you so so much... I know you are a...
“Beautiful Angel“ (my rambling)

She is a beautiful angel, Heaven’s greeters proclaimed!
Her heart is pure and her spirit unstained!

Beside Max she now sits and looks down from above,
Her perfect vision she uses to sprinkle down her love.

Each tear that falls because so much she is missed,
Will be replaced with the soft breeze which now is her kiss.

And the compassion she brought will always be there,
Right by our side, knowing how much for us she cares!

Dear Sue, Sandy & Deb -
I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I know your hearts are breaking, and I hope you find comfort knowing that she is with your Dad now. I know that’s the one thing that has helped me, when thinking about Mom.
Aunt Betty was always so warm and friendly and I never hesitated to give her a hug. Which she returned with great enthusiasm! A beautiful lady and I’m sure a wonderful Mom.
Here’s a picture from July, 2018 when we came back to visit. We miss you all and hope to see you soon.
Love ya-
Sally & Scott

Sue, Sandy, Debbie and Families,
My heart aches at hearing this sad news! Your lives will never be the same, I know! Your Mother is where you came from, your first friend and nothing will ever really separate you, not even death. You will find her in a quiet breeze, the smell of some perfume, or favorite food that she cooked. She is a part of you all forever. My Prayers are for your peace and comfort during this difficult time. I have wonderful memories of your Mom & Dad, Rest in Eternal Peace , Betty Hilton.
