Betty was born on March 14, 1926 in Los Angeles to Roy and Marguerite Howe Fitzgerald. Betty graduated from Los Angeles High School and UCLA where she majored in art. Betty was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority and she met her future husband at a Sigma Nu fraternity party.

Her older sister, Dorothea Fitzgerald, preceded her in death on December 19, 2002. Betty Pomeroy took great pride in being a mother and grandmother to her seven children and her nine grandchildren.
