BREDEN, Betty Ruth, February 27, 2014 cancer took Betty Ruth Breden, 60, from us. Although she resided in Holiday, FL, she spent the last several months with her daughter & son-in-law in Richmond, VA. Betty was born March 24, 1953 in Berwyn, IL and moved to Florida in 1985. She worked in many nursing homes in the Clearwater/Tampa area first as an Activities Director, and more recently as a Nursing Home Administrator. Betty will be remembered by all the people's lives she touched with her smile, strength, energy, and passion for life. She was a loving mother, daughter; excellent Girl Scout Leader and Administrator; and friend that will be missed by many. Betty was preceded in death by her father, Raymond K. Johnson. Betty is survived by her mother, Ruth I. Johnson; daughter & son-in-law Ericka & Ben Crouse; siblings Bill Johnson & Kristin Kaminski; nephews Adam & Michael Johnson, T.J. & Sean Kaminski; and niece Shannon Kaminski. She will soon be a new grandmother, but cherished Morgan, Madison, Montana and Sean as if they were her own grandchildren. To honor her time spent at Sylvan Health Center, Betty's work family will be hosting her Memorial Service on Sunday March 23, 2014 at 12:45 p.m. in the Town Hall at Regency Oaks - 2720 Regency Oaks Blvd, Clearwater, FL 33759.
