She is survived by her son Mark of Union, ME., son Alan and his wife Michelle of Folsom, CA., granddaughter Amy Alvarez and her husband Xavier of Stratford, CT.; grandchildren Jack and Sonya Anderson and great-grandsons Zion and Miles Alvarez.

A person is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent people and affection of children…who appreciates beauty and finds the best in others; who leaves the world a bit better, who knows that even one life has breathed easier because she has lived, this is to have succeeded. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Betty's current and past family and many friends would certainly agree that she led a successful life.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 15, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. directly in Long Hill United Methodist Church, 6358 Main Street, Trumbull.
