Betty was a graduate of South Side High School where she was voted best athlete.

Betty loved University of Michigan Football and could always be prompted to sing the fight song.

She was a renowned pitcher for the Bob Inn softball team for six seasons leading them to several State Championships. She also played and coached basketball for General Electric where she worked for 41 years retiring in 1980. Betty attended 71 consecutive Indianapolis 500 races and was featured with Steve Hartman on the CBS Evening News when at 89 years old she was treated to a ride in an Indy car driven by Scott Hamilton.
