Elizabeth "Betty" Moy Leigh was born in Lake Station, IN, in 1927. She moved to Dayton, OH, where she married John Peters and raised their two sons, John and Michael, while working full time at Dayton Power & Light Company (1960s-1980s) rising from a file clerk to the first female department manager.|
Betty lit up the room wherever she was and endeared herself to others with her wit, energy and intelligence. While working full-time, she attained her college degree at the University of Dayton.
Betty and her husband, David, married in 1978 and moved to Rancho Bernardo in 1985 where she enjoyed golf in the sunshine. She passed on June 26, 2014, with David beside her.
