Elizabeth "Betty" Long
3/06/20 - 10/24/13
After enjoying a nice lunch and harmonizing in a songfest, longtime Alamedan Betty Long closed her eyes, took a gentle breath and exited this world gracefully, as she would have wished. She leaves behind loving son and daughter Craig Long and Nancy Long Brandt, son-in-law Steve Brandt; many nieces and nephews, and stepgrands Rob and Demi Brandt. Betty was predeceased in 2011 by her husband of 63 years, Leonard O. Long. A celebration of her life will be held in January. Details will be posted at Legacy.com. Contributions to the Alameda Free Library Foundation in her memory would have filled her heart.
