A delightful lady! My family lived next door to Booty on Reamer Avenue since 1954. Booty was loving, cheerful and sincere, and will be missed. There will always be a special place in my heart for Booty.

I send my heartiest condolences to Booty's extended family. We shared good times on the tennis court.

We met Booty at Water Aerobics at the JCC. We instantly became good friends with her and her late husband, Henry. She was a very kind and sweet person, and we were very blessed to have her as a friend. She will always live in our hearts and we will never forget her.

I had the pleasure of having Ms. Booty as my client, 5 nights a week and some weekends, for over 3 years while working for RetireEase Senior Services. What a beautiful lady she was and what a blessing she has been to me. My life is richly blessed as a result of spending so much time with her. She will always possess a special place in my heart! In the words of Ms. Booty....what you up to no good?
