May 30, 2009

Betty Hope Getty, age 88, a long-time Danville resident, died on May 29, 2009 at Grandview Health Homes in Danville. Betty, the daughter of Howard and Beulah (Fetterman) Rider was born September 15, 1920 in Bloomsburg, Pa and grew up in Catawissa.

She was one of the top students in the 1938 Catawissa High School graduating class.

On July 28, 1939, Betty married Chester S. Getty in the parsonage of the First United Methodist Church in Catawissa.

Betty worked for the F.W. Woolworth Company for 33 years where she especially enjoyed interacting with customers. She was a long-time member of Trinity United Methodist Church and loved traveling to see loved ones, reading historical novels, and cooking. Betty particularly enjoyed canning home grown vegetables and preparing picnic lunches with strawberry Jell-o to share with friends and family.

Betty is survived by Chester, her husband of 69 years; her sister, Mildred Fetterman; daughters, Linda Hoover and Gail Stan; grandchildren, Elizabeth von Toll, John Hoover and Matthew Stan; and great grandchildren, John Hoover, Alec Hoover and Caroline Hoover. In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her granddaughter, Tracey Hoover.
