Geraldine M. Betz
Geraldine M. Betz, 97, beloved sister of Audrey R. Betz of Craftsbury, died Saturday evening, April 18, 2009, at the Greensboro Nursing Home where she had been a resident for more than two years.
Ms. Betz was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, a daughter of William C. and Geraldine (Haggart) Betz.
She earned her degree in nursing from the Jersey City Medical Center. She served in England and France during World War II as a 1st Lieutenant U.S. Army nurse with the 64th Field Hospital. After her discharge, she was recalled to serve in Japan in 1950 and 1951 to help at the clinics after the bombing of Hiroshima. She then spent her career as a professional school nurse in New Jersey.
She and her sister lost their mother in her early fifties and cared for their father until his death at age 91 in Chattam, New Jersey. They enjoyed traveling together and on their own.
She was a gifted seamstress, making her own clothing as well as some for Audrey. This was a talent learned from her grandmother, which she loved to share.
In 1984 she and Audrey moved to their home in Craftsbury where she attended the United Church of Craftsbury and was a former member of the Ladies Aid Society.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 2, at 2 p.m. at the Davis Funeral Home in Craftsbury Common with Pastor Alan Parker officiating. Interment will follow in the Craftsbury Village Cemetery.
