Betty was one of the neighborhood moms and always asked if everyone was ok. She was an avid lover of all the Holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our childhood house on Linden Ave. was always decorated inside and out to the T. She had SANTA (RON) and the boys out on the roof every year putting up decorationsâ€¦ She made the Holidays special and my sister and I continue that holiday cheer even today with our own children and grandchildren. She will be missed by all who knew her! Rest in peace MaMa!!! Arrangements were made through Conroy Funeral Home and Betty was laid to rest in St. Bernard's Cemetery. A Private family service will be held at a later date to be officiated by Pastor Jeff Clevenger.
