Obituary Condolences

Betty J. Burton
1930 - 2012
Our loving sister Betty passed on the morning of November 21st following a battle with pneumonia. She was predeceased by her domestic partner of 50 years, Lawrence (Larry) Geraldi (2007). Due to wartime shortage of workers, Betty began her lifetime restaurant career at age 14. She attended Berkeley High School then settled in San Francisco where she worked with Larry in his restaurants, most notably the Domino Club and later, at Salutos in Burlingame.
Betty is survived by her sister, Frances Carter, brothers, Robert and William (Clara), nine nephews and their extended families and Cora Cruz, her dear friend, affairs and care manager.
Arrangements are done by Duggan's Serra Mortuary, 500 Westlake Ave., Daly City where viewing will be held on Wednesday, November 28th at 8:30 a.m. and the Mass of Christian Burial at Holy Angels Church at 11:00 a.m. followed by Committal at Holy Cross Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Red Cross.
