Betty was a member of the Sacred Heart Church. She was an avid reader and enjoyed spending time playing Mah Jongg with her friends and family. She was a fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers and enjoyed watching Jeopardy. She often would know the answers before anyone was finished reading the question. She was proud to be a native of St. Marys and would often be seen on her porch enjoying the weather, reading, or listening to a baseball game. Above all else, her faith and family were most important to her. She loved travelling the country to visit her children and grandchildren, she was so proud of her family.
