Betty G. Armbruster(1923 - 2014)

Betty G. Armbruster

AGE: 90 • Wilmington

Betty Armbruster of Wilmington, DE went home to be with the Lord and her beloved Jack on Tuesday, March 25, 2014 surrounded by her family. She was 90 years old. Born and raised in Wilmington, Betty never strayed far from home. She did however travel the country with her husband who served in the United States Navy during WWII.

Betty loved the beach, crabs, water, family, friends and most of all her grandchildren. She was quick witted and had a wicked sense of humor right up until the day she passed away. You never saw her without a smile on her face. Betty never came across an individual she didn't love.

She leaves behind to cherish her memories her daughters, Barbara (Ron) Howard, Carol (John) Anderson, Donna (Robert) Drummond with whom she lived, and her son Richard (Michelle) Armbruster. Betty was blessed with ten grandchildren, Ronald Jr., Jon, Lynn, Duke, Kerry, Samantha, Richie, Caitlin, Courtney and Haley. Betty also had many great-grandchildren, with another one on the way.

The family would like to thank the staff of Active Day Senior Center for the love, care and support given to Betty.

Please join us for a celebration of her life on Friday, March 28 at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Pike Creek. A period of visitation will begin at 10:00AM, followed by funeral services at 11:00AM. A private interment will follow the services.
