Betty Ann Hoyt

Betty Ann Hoyt Pomeroy, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, formerly of Toledo, Ohio, died peacefully on April 24, 2015, in Deerfield Beach, Florida at 89 years old. Born in Toledo, graduated from DeVilbiss High School, completed a two-year degree from Davis Business College, and married her high school sweetheart, Robert F. Pomeroy in 1946.

Betty and Bob spent several years in Ypsilanti, Michigan, where Bob served in the U.S. Navy and earned his master's degree at the University of Michigan. They moved to Dorseyville, Pittsburgh, PA. Betty cared for the family and managed household and finances. Her parents were Eleanore Thomson Hoyt and Paul Millard Hoyt; sister, Katherine Jean Hoyt Moench; half-siblings, Donald, John, James, and Judith "Marilyn" Hoyt; children, Stephen Pomeroy (Marilyn Mariano) and Christine "Tina" Pomeroy Lloyd (Marshall).

They moved to Sylvania, then back to Toledo in the early '50s. Betty's occupations were home and church life. She was a gifted soprano, singing by invitation and in the church choir from an early age. Creative and artistic, her talents were used in church community and in helping Steve and Tina with school and scout projects, and she designed and sketched beautiful costumes and ladies' dresses. She was very involved in church "circles" and had many friends. She worked as Church Secretary. Her kind and giving nature was known to all throughout her life. Her ever-present smile and sparkling blue eyes showed the beauty within.

In 1969 they moved to Deerfield Beach, where they owned and managed the Pomeroy Apartments Motel on A1A for 25 years. She and Bob retired at age 69 to a condominium on the Intracoastal Waterway, across the bridge from the former Pomeroy Apartments. Their days were filled with their six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, swimming, daily walks, church, and Bible study. Bob passed in 2005. Betty suffered from ALS for the last 15 years of her life.

Services will be on Wednesday, April 29 at Kraeer Funeral Home in Deerfield Beach, Florida as follows: Visitation 5-7 p.m., Service at 7 p.m. Website:
