Betty had worked as an assistant librarian at the Walworth Public Library and the Wayne Central School District. An accomplished pianist, she loved to play the piano any chance she had. Betty took pride in her family and she enjoyed all family gatherings.

She is survived by three sons Stephen of Palmyra, Gary (Vickie) of Palmetto, FL., Daniel (Ann) of East Palmyra; two daughters Nancy (William) Schrader of Newark and Jennifer (Edward) Weykman of Palmyra; fourteen grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren. Betty was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, George in 1998; a daughter Kathryn Rease and a daughter-in-law Pamela Rease.
