Betty was born in West New York, N.J. in 1925, the fourth of six siblings. Betty was employed at Allied Chemical as a customer service representative for more than 30 years.

Betty loved to be surrounded by people and was a member of DelVets and The Church of the Holy Child and its Lazarus Committee. The greatest joy in her life was being a wife, mother and grandmother.

Her husband of 56 years, Peter Welsh, died in 2010.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11am, Saturday, November 24 at The Church of the Holy Child, 2500 Naamans Rd., Wilmington, where a viewing will be held from 10am-11am.
