Betsy enjoyed traveling, gardening, and had a heart for animals. She was an accomplished athlete in her younger years. She never met a stranger and was a determined optimist. Betsy assisted with fundraisers for Rappahannock Benevolence dinners, as well as the Fodderstack Race, and RACC.

Betsy is survived by her sister, Mary Berryman (Hunt); and a host of close friends that loved her dearly.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Betsy's family would like to acknowledge with sincere appreciation the care given to her by all of her caregivers.
