Nancy Joanne Betz, 84, of Danville, PA and formerly of Elysburg PA entered into the presence of her Lord and Savior and reunited with the love of her life on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at Emmanuel Nursing Center in Danville PA.  She was born July 15, 1934 in Danville PA the daughter of the late Ralph and Helen D.

She graduated from Shamokin High School.

She was preceded in death by her devoted husband of 57 years, Freeman H. Betz whom she married March 19, 1955.
