She subsequently lived on Fairway Avenue and, after a 4 or 5 year gap, moved back to the Claridge House in Verona, living there until around 2010.

Betty was active in the League of Women Voters, PTA and many other Verona activities. She is survived by her sons, Robert and Kenneth, both of whom attended Verona schools up through high school.
