DENNIS, BETTY JEAN "B.J." November 28,1920 to July 3, 2011

B.J. Dennis, as she was affectionately known in Borrego Springs, passed away on Sunday, July 3rd after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

She has lived in Borrego Springs for over 20 years. In 1985 after the death of her husband, Howard C. Dennis, she bought one of the first available homes in Ram's Hill. She was an avid golfer, participating in, supporting and helping with many tournaments in Borrego. She loved playing bridge with her many friends and neighbors.

The Borrego Veterans Detachment, B.V.D., was special in her heart, giving them her full support with her time and fund-raising skills. Later when the B.V.D. group was dissolved and their assets were transferred to the American Legion, she continued her support for Post 853. She was 2nd Vice Chairman of the Auxiliary for three years and also Co-Chairman for District 22, which included 18 Auxiliary Units in and around San Diego.

B.J. was born in San Diego on Nov. 28, 1920. She celebrated her 90th birthday in a grand celebration with her friends from San Diego and Borrego at the American Legion Post 853. We will all remember her spirited enthusiasm for adventure, courage, determination and love of life. Her remains will be placed alongside her husband at Greenwood Cemetery.
