A. Betty Scheetz 88, WWII veteran, high school salutatorian
A. Betty Scheetz, 88, of Lancaster, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013 at Hospice & Community Care of Lancaster, surrounded by her family.
Her daughter Karen lives in Lititz.
Born in Covert, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late John and Leadora (Robinson) Rinwaldon. Betty and Howard A. Scheetz were married in the Elmira Methodist Church and celebrated 60 years of joyous, argument-free marriage last October.
A veteran of World War II, she proudly served in the U.S. Navy as a storekeeper 3rd class.
She was the salutatorian of the graduating class at Elmira High School. Betty attended the Elmira Business Institute, and went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Elmira College, which was one of the oldest women’s colleges in the country.
Betty worked at Norden Bombsight Manufacturer and was a secretary at Corning Glass Works in Corning, N.Y. She enjoyed reading mystery books, sewing, knitting, gardening, bowling, doing crossword puzzles and, especially, spending time with her family.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her son: Robert Scheetz, husband of Bernice, of Lancaster; and a daughter: Karen Cooper, of Lititz. Also surviving are four grandchildren: Benjamin Scheetz, Perry Scheetz, Kyle Cooper and Candice Todd (wife of Dustin).
A graveside service was held Feb. 12 at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, Annville, with full military honors. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Hospice & Community Care, P.O. Box 4125, Lancaster, PA 17604-4125.
