Betty Lukas Obituary
When news broke in the late 1960s on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Betty Lukas was on the move - and having three children enrolled in local schools didn't slow her down.
Lukas' three children were at her side when she died of ovarian cancer March 25 in her Palos Verdes Estates home.
Her career spanned 50 years, including 18 at the Los Angeles Times. She worked as the first female news editor of the editorial pages for the Times beginning in 1973 when she joined a copy desk consisting of eight men at the Orange County edition of the paper in Costa Mesa.
