"Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, let me stand, I am tired, I am weak, I am worn through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light; ... take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home."

Our loving wife, mother and grandmother, Elizabeth "Betty" Wanzo, 76, of Windham Summit, Pa., went home to be with her precious Lord on Monday morning, July 30, 2007, following a period of declining health.

Betty was born on June 18, 1931, in Seymour, Ind., a daughter of the late Frank and Lida (Bostwick) Robertson.

For many years, Betty owned and operated Wanzo's Archery Shop, where she was known for her handcrafted arrows and bows. She also enjoyed golfing, sewing, knitting and spending time in her flower gardens.

In addition Betty was a devoted member of the Windham Summit Bible Church, where she served as church treasurer. Betty also was a member of Order of Eastern Star, Nichols, N.Y.; a member of the Windham Fire Company; and served on the Board of Elections.

Betty is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 54 years, Carlton L. Wanzo; her daughter and son-in-law, Cindy and Howard Horrocks of Chemung, N.Y.; her son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Deb Wanzo of Nichols; her brother and sister-in-law, John and Hilda Robertson of Florida; Bonnie Thomas of Florida. Also surviving are eight special grandchildren, Nicole, Mindy and her husband, Travis; Becky and her husband, Steve; Tabatha, Jacksin, Michelle and her husband, Dan; Amy; and Michael; as well as eight great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Lida Robertson; her half-brother, Stuart; and half-sisters Dorothy and Frances.

Family and friends are invited to a time of remembering and celebration of Betty's life at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 2, at the Windham Summit Bible Church, with her pastor, the Rev. C. Kenneth Crain, and Pastor Jacob Longacre officiating. Interment and prayers of committal will follow in the Nichols Cemetery.

A period of visitation and sharing memories will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 1, at the Sutfin Funeral Chapel, 273 S. Main St., Nichols.
