Elizabeth A. (Kraley) Innacell, age 91 of Bridgeport, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at the West River Rehab Center. She has joined her beloved husband of 60 years, the late Anthony R. Innacell, Sr., who passed away 11 years ago to the day.
Born in Jermyn, PA on November 4, 1931 she was the daughter of the late John and Mary (Relock) Kraley and was a longtime resident of Bridgeport.
Betty was employed by Wonder Bread Bakeries, B & W Leather Goods and Warnaco from where she retired. For many years she volunteered alongside her husband at the Bridgeport Elks Lodge 36 and the St. Francis X. Cabrini Knights of Columbus Council 4096. Betty loved to cook and took great joy in feeding her family and everyone who stopped by to visit. She was a die-hard NY Yankees fan and never missed an opportunity to watch a game. She looked forward to her trips with her husband to Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Ledyard. Visits with her sisters always included scratch-off lottery tickets, bingo and smiles.

Innacell, Jr., of Phoenix, AZ, Patricia Innacell-Fignar of Cleveland, OH, Louis Innacell and his wife Lori of Bridgeport and Dianna Innacell-D'Angelico of West Haven, 10 grandchildren, April Innacell-Silverman (Jeffrey), Caitlynn and Dylan Innacell, Brittany Fignar-Haddad (Jason), Gabrielle Fignar (fiance Logan) James and Robert Innacell and John, Anthony and Dominick (Jennifer) D'Angelico.
