Elizabeth, warmly nicknamed “Betty Boop,” was born in Worcester, MA on August 24, 1943. She lived in several locations, including New Orleans and Florida. Her later years were spent with her partner, Gary Huguenin, who passed away six years ago.
Betty attended David Prouty High School. She later worked at Brookfield Shoe for a good many years and also worked at Daypaul Plastics in Worcester.
Betty enjoyed traveling, shopping and Facebook. She was known as the rooster on Facebook because she was on bright and early every day with a good look on life, cheering everyone up. She was tremendously proud of her children and grandchildren, and thoughtfully sent all of her family members cards for every occasion. She was a joyous, selfless and kind woman. We will all miss her conversations, her laughter and her smiles. Thank you for all the good years you gave us. “Rah-Rah” “Be cool” “Ly Xoxo”
