Elizabeth, Betty, Betty Lou, Betty Boop, will be remembered for her kind heart and giving personality. She wore her heart on her sleeve and was always there if anyone needed her.
Even if it was just an ear to listen and give you her special advice.
Betty grew up in Le Roy, N.Y., where she graduated high school and kept many friends throughout her life and enjoyed being a part of her Red Hatters group. She loved traveling, shopping, going to out to dinner and especially her time spent at the lake with her lifelong friend, Cathy.
Betty was also a Bill’s fan and never missed a game.
But most of all she loved sharing her time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
