The WISN story can be found here.  I've never eaten there but have heard good things about it, and it sounds like she's going to be greatly missed by both her family and community.

        I'm very sorry to hear about this. My roadfood plans for the next few months include a visit to Speed Queen, and I regret that I won't have the opportunity to meet this special lady.

          Her husband was a special guy too.
          The restaurant remains in good hands.

              Will miss Betty, she was a class act and very respected in Milwaukee.  Been a customer and supplier to her for years, the legend and quality will remain via Giovanni.
