Ms. Betty lived a gloriously animated Key West Conch life. She worked many years at the Pier House, beginning in the mid-1980s. Ms. Betty’s true call of duty in this life came from her work as a dietary aide at the Lower Keys Medical Center. Her passion for compassion shined and brightened the halls and every room in the facility. She loved helping co-workers and health care professionals and was supremely committed to the patients and their families. Her boundless energy focused on providing strength, encouragement, laughter, entertainment, and assistance — above and beyond the important fulfillment of the patients’ dietary needs. This judgeless angel never ever turned a blind eye to anyone in need — no matter their station nor circumstances. Her charity work was tireless and her fundraising extraordinary. Ms. Betty became our Angel in Heaven on December 4, 2022. Her passion and commitment to exceptional service will live on through the students who receive her scholarships.
