BLAKE, BETTY YAFFE Died peacefully on Friday, Sept. 14th just 6 days before her 102nd birthday. She lived a long, happy and complete life.

Betty, known as "Betty the Baker", always had cookies and "fudge bars" for her children, their friends and in her later years, for friends at St. Andrews Estates in Boca Raton. Betty was a supportive mom who always said, "as long as it makes you happy, dear!" she is survived by 3 of her 4 sons, Alvin (Jane), Stanford (Lisa), Gerald (Linda) and daughter-in-law, Janet (Robert deceased).
