Betsy grew up on her family’s farm (McPherson Orchards) across from the Oatka Creek in Le Roy, NY and was proud to tell everyone she met about growing up on the farm. After graduating from Michigan State, Betsy taught elementary school in San Diego where she met her beloved husband, Henry before returning to the east coast. Betsy worked at John Hancock for many years before leaving when her son was born and spent many years as a real estate agent in Medfield, MA.
Betsy was an avid reader and enjoyed spending time gardening and caring for the yard at her home. She also was an active tennis player, participating in several tennis leagues each year. She would read the newspaper cover to cover every day, usually starting with the sports section (loved following the Red Sox and Patriots). She enjoyed traveling to locations far and wide with family and friends and took many cruises throughout Europe and the Caribbean. She was fond of spending time with her friends and family, especially over a good meal. She was always happy to return to the family farm and visit her hometown.
A gathering of remembrance will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Betsy’s memory to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (www.dana-farber.org) or the Leroy Historical Society (leroyhistoricalsociety.org).
