Betty worked as a Lab Technician for the Dept. of Natural Resources and earned her Bachelor of Arts at UNB at the age of 69. She was a natural artist and enjoyed spending her time painting and making cards for family and friends. Over the years she made many quilts and blankets, and loved giving them as gifts for special occasions, especially when there was a new baby. Christmas was her favorite holiday, and her home was always filled with decorations and some of her homemade tree ornaments.
Betty loved animals and enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels at the feeders.
A drive in the country with a stop for lunch was one of her favorite ways to spend the day.
