Betty was a graduate of St. Joseph’s College receiving a degree in Liberal Arts. She was a proud member of the Simsbury Historical Society, the Simsbury Garden Club and the Abigail Phelps Chapter of the DAR. Outside of the time she spent volunteering, she enjoyed knitting, reading history books and was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox. She looked forward to every summer for over the past 50 years, where she would visit East Brewster, Cape Cod. Her favorite past-time was going to Antonio’s every Friday night, where she had her very own booth and her second family.
