Betty Jean Brys
March 30, 1935 – January 10, 2021
It is heartbreaking for the family to announce the death of our mother, Betty Brys due to COVID-19. Betty was born on a farm in rural western PA, to Harry and Mabel Wise. As a teenager, Betty met the love of her life, Ralph Brys, roller skating. They were married September 25, 1954.
Betty worked in the Banking Industry for 35 years. She enjoyed having a good time, celebrating with friends, square dancing, camping, and traveling in their 5th wheel. Betty was the all around social butterfly, caring for all.
Betty's highlight of her life was being a mother to Gary, Debbie, Tom and Dave; Nana to Matt, Jason, Michelle, Mandy, Michael, Kirk, Sierra and Megan: Great-Nana to Garrett, Olivia and Lucca.
Betty fought a courageous 10 yr battle with Parkinson's disease. Betty is proceeded in death by Ralph, and survived by 22 family members.
Betty was laid to rest with Ralph on January 20, 2021. Mom would have been very pleased to share her interment day with President Biden's inauguration.
