    The McAllen Music Club members are honoring the memory of Betty Sieglaff who spent a number of years as an active member of this Nationally Federated Music Club by dedicating this year’s  scholarship program in Betty’s name. Betty enjoyed playing the piano with us in our annual 2-piano, 4 hands concert given every spring. Her engaging smile and warm laughter will be sadly missed. Condolences to all the Sieglaff family and friends.

    My most sincere condolences to the Sieglaff family. Betty was one of our volunteers for many years along with husband Cicel at McAllen Chamber of Commerce. Betty always came in to greet me with a big smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May she rest RIP.
