Their spouses and their children and their children’s children numbering over one hundred and fifty, people who loved her. Betty was born November 11, 1936, in Mt Morris, NY and graduated from Nunda Central School in 1955. After taking a job at Westinghouse in Bath, NY, she met Henry. They moved frequently and eventually bought a home in Springwater NY where they raised their nine children. She was a member of Dansville Free Methodist Church for many years, where most of her sisters and brothers attended also. Her brothers Ronald “Ronnie”, William “Billy”, David and Robert “Butch”, all passed before her. Betty was a strong woman of faith, who loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus. She was a warm, soft-spoken woman who dearly loved her family. She mothered anyone who needed mothering, and all babies brought her immense joy. Betty was full of humor and always ready with a smile. She was famous for her freshly baked homemade bread and cinnamon rolls. If you never tasted her homemade bread, we are sorry for you. Betty loved reading her Bible. Reading was a gift she gave her children as she read thousands of books. She also loved plants, wanting to be a florist after graduation. She could grow anything. Birdfeeders adorn her side porch because she loved all kinds of birds, especially hummingbirds, but the bird she loved the most was Woodstock. Celebration of Life service for Betty will be held Saturday April 30, 2022 at 10:00 am at the Oakland Wesleyan Church with the Rev. Paul Palmer officiating.
