Long time Van Nuys resident, Betty Marie Connolly, died on Sunday, February 2, 2014 at age 99. She died peacefully in the home that her husband and she built 70-years ago.

Betty was born on August 2, 1914 to Ella and Michael O'Brien in Springfield, Missouri. She moved to Southern California in the early 1930's and married John Connolly in 1937. The couple celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary shortly before John died in 1993.
