Betty graduated from Morgantown High School as part of the class of 1962. She retired from Lee Hospital in Johnstown after many years of service working as a medical secretary in the oncology department. Betty was a very active and lifelong member of Westmont Presbyterian Church in Johnstown. She enjoyed creating necklace pendants and attending craft fairs. Betty loved going out to eat, shopping, and traveling with her husband and friends. She especially liked beach trips with Mike. The two were very social, always having friends over and gatherings on their front porch. Betty’s most treasured times were spent with her grandchildren. She was enthusiastic about making the holidays special, and Betty’s family will miss her touches with decorating and special meals she prepared.
