Betty: August 20, 1940 ~ January 13, 2020
Betty was full spirited with a zest for life that touched everyone. Her signature laugh, which was so contagious just made your heart happy. She was very proud of her family and wanted to dedicate all the time she could with them. Betty cherished her friends and had an innate instinct for nurturing and making everyone feel so very loved and important. Betty never wanted to miss a thing or an opportunity to spend time with family and friends. She had a serious case of FOMO – “a fear of missing out.”
Betty was quite an athlete from a young age. She played softball, volleyball, basketball, grass hockey, lacrosse, and swam during her school years. She coached all 3 daughter’s softball teams. As her girls got older, Betty played softball, golf, bowling, and lawn bowling. Betty got a hole in one on the 4th hole at Meadow Gardens and was Women’s Captain for a few years. Betty was always fun and always busy. She was ready and willing to play a game, have a dance, or sing a song. She also enjoyed shopping, traveling, going to shows and plays, lunch or dinner with her friends, crib night, and bridge.
Betty was a special person. She was the most caring, thoughtful, compassionate, kind, generous, empathetic, unselfish, and loving person you can imagine. One of the most amazing things about Betty is how much she cared for other people. Betty will be sadly missed by her husband, Al; her daughters, Lori, Nancy (Steve), and Sheri; her grandchildren, Rachel, Ashley, Ryan, Kaitlyn, Jaden, and Jaxon; and all of her friends.
So don’t worry mom…if we have the choice to sit it out or dance…we’ll dance.
