The body of Betty L. Martof, age 55, was found in her car submerged in 12 feet of water in Moraine State Park's Lake Arthur one day after park officials reported vehicle tracks leading to a hole in the ice. The area is about 60 miles from her home.

She lived alone in the two-story house she grew up in on Sheridan Ave., Warren, Ohio.

Her sister-in-law, Arlene Martof said that sometimes, Betty got disoriented. She would drive and not know where she was going. She would get on the turnpike and drive and not know where to get off.

John Tukori, a neighbor, said that Martof had worked for Super Kmart in nearby Niles for 25 years before she was laid off around springtime. After she lost her job, he said, she lived with her only son in Florida for about five months. When she returned to Ohio two weeks ago, she told him she had lined up a job in Florida and was packing her belongings for a permanent move down South.

None of the neighbors had any idea what she was doing in Pennsylvania. They didn't know of any relatives or acquaintances of hers who lived there and doubt that she would have been suicidal. "After Kmart, she got right up and brushed herself off," Tutoki said.
