Obituary of Myrtle "Betsy" Bradley
Myrtle “Betsy” Bradley, 82, was welcomed into the loving arms of her husband and the Lord as she passed from her earthy body on Friday, February 14, 2020. She passed on the day of love as a true testament to the journey the two enjoyed for over 66 years. They lived a long beautiful life. She met the love of her life at a very young age and married at the age of 15 years old and enjoyed nothing more than their family. She enjoyed traveling and her polka shows and they never let a moment pass them by. Betsy was a member of the Newburgh Eastern Star Chapter #32, and Past Mother Advisor of Newburgh Rainbow Girls. She worked as a cook at John H. Castle Elementary, and was also a custodian at John H. Castle Elementary and Castle High School.

A special thank you to the staff of Deaconess Gateway Hospital, Unit B600 for their special care and compassion in her final days.
