ACTIVIST WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR

I knew Betty through our mutual participation in Unitarian Universalist Women and Religion (UUWR) activities. She faithfully attended UUWR meetings and annual retreats. Her sense of humor and her commitment to women's human rights globally stand out for me. We both attended the UN-NGO Women's Conference in Beijing China in 1995. We spent 10 days in the muddy conference grounds among the colorful booths. Many extraordinary presentations were held on the stages, often in the rain. She and I shared our experiences with a large gathering of supporters in the UU Society of San Francisco sanctuary by acting out a skit we had written together, using umbrellas and raincoats as props. Lots of laughs and important remarks all around. Betty, Presente! ~Liz Fisher

We remember Betty's active interest in politics and the depth of her knowledge about current events. She was a progressive liberal who had a vision for the way things could be improved, backing up her opinions with facts. Volunteering for many causes, she did what needed to be done. She was an inspiration to us! We also remember attending her 65th birthday celebrations held in a Chinese Restaurant in Sunnyvale. We learned then that Betty could throw a rousing party, making everyone feel comfortable. May she travel well! Love to her family, from Liz and Bob Fisher

That's a fine tribute to your Mom. She was a great friend. My best to the three of you and your kids, Betty was a joy. She brought up three great kids.

We will all miss her, it seems like an era drawing to a close.
