Betty graduated from Shaw High School in 1942 and attended Fenn College. She was a lifetime banker and branch manager. During the tax season she worked at H & R Block well into her 80’s. Betty was the first female manager at Union Commerce Bank.
She liked swimming, horseback riding and dancing at the Pavilion on Lake Erie. Betty was very active in outdoor sports. She enjoyed listening to swing music. Betty’s family was her greatest blessing in her life. She had a special focus on her grandsons and great-grandsons. Betty’s Scottish heritage was a focal point of her life. Her parents immigrated from Scotland in 1920 and brought them the traditions and relationships that were lifelong.
Birthdays and holidays were always major celebrations. Betty will be remembered as very kind, loving and compassionate. She was very respectful and sweet but had a wonderful sense of humor.
