STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - Betty McDonough-Foote, 80, of New Dorp, a former telephone switchboard operator, died Tuesday in Staten Island University Hospital, Ocean Breeze.

Born Betty McDonough in Savannah, Ga., she moved to Rock Hill, S.C., in 1940. In 1957, she moved to Dongan Hills, and settled in New Dorp in 1976.

Mrs. McDonough-Foote worked for two years as a switchboard operator in the U.S. Signal Services office in Fort Wadsworth. She then worked for a year as a switchboard operator for Chase Manhattan Bank in Manhattan, until leaving to raise a family.

Mrs. McDonough-Foote was a founding member of the Richboro Baptist Church in Eltingville. She was also a longtime member of New Dorp Baptist Church, having first joined in 1957.

Mrs. McDonough-Foote enjoyed reading and caring for her former dog, Pixie.

"She loved her children and her family and she loved her church," said her son, Robert McDonough.

Her first husband of 11 years, Robert McDonough, died in 1968. A son, Brian McDonough, died in 1999. Her second husband of 31 years, Edward Foote, died in 2007.

Along with her son, Robert, also surviving is another son, David McDonough.

The funeral will be Friday at 8 p.m. in the John Vincent Scalia Home for Funerals, Eltingville. Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery, Castleton Corners
