1930-2016 TYRINGHAM Betty Jean Cernik, 86 of Tyringham passed away peacefully on Wednesday August 24, 2016 with family members by her side in Katy, TX. Betty was born on April 28th in Albany, NY daughter of Willett & Florence Lounsbury. She was a long time resident of Tyringham serving as tax collector for 30 years. Betty dedicated a lifetime of service to her community; also serving as town secretary, on the voter's registration board, driver for elder services and numerous other committees. There was nothing she would not do for the townspeople, but perhaps she was best remembered for her cinnamon rolls, always requested for family and town suppers. Betty enjoyed playing cards, bingo, coffee hours with town members and church functions. Betty's husband, Larry F. Cernik predeceased her in 2007. Betty is survived by her children, Richard of West Stockbridge, Larry Donald (and wife Robin) of Durham, NC, Dawn of Katy, TX, Jeffrey of Martinsburg, WV and Randy (and his wife Chris) of Seabrook, TX as well as 6 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Graveside services will be held at a later date in Tyringham, MA. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Dawn Cernik, PO Box 1305, Katy, TX 77492-1305. Donations will be made from those to the Tyringham Union Church of which she was a longtime member and to the volunteers at West Methosist Hospital who were so kind to her and her family in her final hours.
