Betty’s passing marks a milestone for Beta Theta, a local philanthropic organization and chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha. Betty is the first of its co-founders to pass and her presence will be greatly missed. Her work for Beta Theta was tireless, as was her support to its state project, the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, which was near and dear to her heart.
