Betty worked in the Records Department of the Greenwich Police Department for twenty five years, retiring in 1986. For many, many years Betty ran the Port Chester High School, Class of '36 high school reunion and loved every minute of it. She remained close friends with the boys and girls on "The Committee" for years beyond. A few more thoughts about our kind mother: Mom loved taking pictures with her Polaroid camera; she had a beautiful smile and always got the most gifts at Christmas!
Betty was a kind and generous lady who did not have a mean bone in her body and will be sorely missed by her family and all those who knew her. A private service will be held at the Leo P. Gallagher and Son Funeral Home in Greenwich on Saturday, April 5th at 10 a.m. She will be buried with Martin in the family plot at St. Mary's Cemetery, Greenwich.
