Cinderella Cel to Betty Craig

Q: My parents purchased a Cinderella cel. This cel has the original background of the stairway with the Cinderella cel superimposed on the background. The cel was also signed by Frank Thomas, Mark Davis and Ollie Johnston. Before these three cartoonists signed the cel, it was signed by Walt Disney himself. Walt Disney wrote, "To Betty Craig Cordially, Walt Disney." My question is, who is Betty Craig? I have looked everywhere but can't seem to tie her to Cinderella or anything with Disney.
