Times Leader, The (Wilkes Barre, PA) - Thursday, November 12, 2009
Betty James has left this Earth on Nov. 9, 2009, to join her husband, Tom, in her Lord and Savior arms.
She was a daughter of the late Emma and Joseph Hillard.
Betty was a religious woman who was a devoted member of the Franklin Street Primitive Methodist Church. There she also belonged to the Ladies Aid and Sunday School class.
In her younger years she worked at America Tobacco Co. and General Cigar Co. Betty and her husband were early residents of Sylvan Lake, where they lived close to family and friends. They also spent winters at their Florida home. There she was a member of the United Church and Ladies Club. Betty and her husband enjoyed many cruises, but most of all she enjoyed spending time with family.
Although Betty is in the arms of her true love in Heaven, her passing has broken the hearts of family and friends. Her personality of being kind, her giving ways and her great smile will never be forgotten.
Preceding her in death was her husband of 65 years, Thomas James Jr.; her sisters Mary Sando and Margaret Heselop; brothers Kenny, Harry, Joseph and Bob Hillard.
Missing her dearly is her daughter Diane Munster and son-in-law, George; granddaughter Adrienne Pollock and husband, Bill; great-grandchildren Brianna, Elyssa, William and Anthony Pollock; her son Thomas Joseph and his wife, Irene; their son Christopher and his wife, Trisha, and their daughter, Jessica; sister Ruth Strass Goldstein.
Although we know Betty is reunited with her husband Tom in Heaven, those of us who truly loved her will miss her and never forget her.
Close friends and family may call from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday at the Clarke Piatt Funeral Home Inc., 6 Sunset Lake Rd., Hunlock Creek. Following final services, entombment will be in Memorial Shrine Park Cemetery, West Wyoming.
