Betty was born in Manhattan, NY, the daughter of Lewis and Elizabeth Petro. She grew up in Bellerose, NY and graduated from Sewanhaka High School in 1953. She went on to attend Lenox Hill Hospital School of Nursing, where she received her nursing degree in 1956 and continued her education at Adelphi College earning a Bachelor of Science degree in 1961. Betty began her career as a visiting nurse on Long Island and went on to work at Farmingdale College and the Greater Long Island Blood Bank.
Betty was an avid reader, traveled the world and enjoyed golfing on the lush courses around her home in Long Island. She was a kind, caring and loving person. After raising her three daughters in Deer Park, she moved to Acton, MA, to be closer to her family. More than anything, Betty enjoyed spending time with her seven grandchildren. She treasured attending their various sporting events, plays and musicals and attending special day activities at their schools. Betty would always show up with a huge smile and a hug for them when it was over. She loved being a Nana and will be missed by all.
