Betty was a graduate of Frankford High School in Philadelphia, attended business school and worked as a private secretary before accepting a position at the Provident Mutual Life Insurance Company. She married Bill Potter in the Bala Cynwyd Methodist Church.

When her first son was 14 months old, she moved to Phoenixville, PA, where her father owned a Cadillac-Oldsmobile agency and employed her husband Bill. They joined the Phoenixville Methodist Church where Betty taught Sunday school, vacation bible school, sang in the choir and was president of the UMW.

When Betty's husband died (12/25/02) she sold their home in Phoenixville and moved permanently to Ocean Grove, NJ, where she sang in the auditorium choir, was an active member of the Ladies' Auxiliary, served as a volunteer at the Historical Society and attended everything that went on in Ocean Grove.

Betty will be remembered for her love and dedication to her family. She was a loyal and caring friend to those who were close to her.
