Betty Haines died peacefully in her sleep early in the
morning, March 14, 2013.
Betty was born in Beatrice, Nebraska, the seventh of nine children. When her family moved to LaVerne, she met John, the love of her life. They went to elementary school, Bonita High School and LaVerne College together. They were married in 1941 and honeymooned in Yosemite.
Betty was a special education teacher at Roosevelt School in Pasadena. She was a deacon at her church and actively participated in many charitable organizations, including Fidelia. Being able to teach and to help others and caring for her own children and grandchild and the other special children in her family were especially meaningful to her.
Betty is survived by her husband, John, her daughters, Jeanne and Pattie, and her grandson, Zack.
Memorial services will be in The Chapel at Pasadena Presbyterian Church on Monday, March 18th at 1:00pm.
