She was a 1952 graduate of Northwestern High School, Hyattsville, MD, and received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Maryland.

I loved Betty...she was a mentor to me in many ways...thru DAR and the Scottish Society of Greater Bloomington...she loved to hear the bagpipes and watch Scottish Dancing. She was such a smart, wonderfully patient, classy lady who will be missed by many. Glad I got to know you Betty
