Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Very sorry to hear about the passing of Betty. Growing up I remember her always sending me and the family beautiful birthday and holiday cards. I remember in my late teens Betty sending me a personal note focused on encouraging me to go to college….. Her words really stuck with me and helped me to make that smart choice. She worked very hard caring for her children and as a nurse caring for others. May she rest in eternal peace. Shelley Lynch

September 26, 2023 Family Sarah, your sister - Betty loved a good laugh and loved sharing stories with her family. If you were on the phone with her, you knew it was going to be a long phone call and best to sit down with an extension phone in case you had to use the bathroom. She would always end her story with the words, 'Well, that's the story. Bye now.' Our mother and father always said she was a hard worker with a tough life and indeed she was, as a nurse, working late shifts, to help meet the needs of her family. Family was an important part of her life. Betty's dad use to take her to Quicky Market every weekend and he enjoyed telling her jokes and making her laugh, even in his elder years. When Betty told her dad the doctor's name was Dr. Heck, when visiting him in the hospital in Boston, her dad replied 'Who the heck is Dr. Heck over and over again and Betty would blush and smile. Betty was dedicated to her catholic religion and raised her children in the catholic faith ensuring they attended catholic schools and church on a regular basis. Religion, she knew, gave a person a sense of purpose and a place to go to during difficult times, lasting a lifetime. I loved visiting Betty and her children growing up and still connect with many of them today. I remember, Peggy playing her clarinet and riding the spring horse in the living room, which we broke, and going into town in Boston to look at the Christmas decorations and picking up little things to take home. I remember the sleep overs and baking of cakes and just sitting at the dining room table together as one large family. I wish we had more of those get-togethers, but I am grateful we had some. A toast to Betty! May you be at peace and know that your life has impacted many people: family, friends, your patients and more. As Clarence, the angel-trainee, said this to a depressed George Bailey: "Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?" Our memories will live on, Betty in the stories we tell our children which they pass onto their children. Love always, your sister, Sarah.
