Elizabeth E. “Betty” Redleski, 90, of Davie, Florida (formerly of Louisville, Ohio) died on July 30th, 2018 at her daughter’s home in Davie, Florida.

She was born on Feb. 29th, 1928 in Woodsfield, Ohio to Clifford Christopher and Essie Belle (Minger) Huffman. She graduated from McKinley High School in 1946 where she studied to enter the workforce as a secretary. Shortly after graduation she met William F. “Bill” Redleski and they eloped to her sister’s home in Industry Illinois where they were married on Nov. 25th, 1946. She and “Bill” were happily married for nearly 62 years before his passing.

In addition to her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by her sisters: Eleanor, Dorothy, Florence (presumed deceased), (Jesse) Marie, Mary; and her brother Christopher.
