Betty was an active lifelong member of First Congregational Church of Wauwatosa. She generously volunteered at the Congregational Home long before she lived in the independent apartments. As part of the founding families of Brookfield Academy, she gave tirelessly to ensure its success. Betty was a lifelong supporter and strong advocate of conservative values and American exceptionalism.
Mom made everyone in our family feel special to her, and her friends were dear and many. She will be missed.
