Elizabeth “Betty” Lee passed away on March 2nd, 2019 at the age of 80 surrounded by her loving family.
She is predeceased by her husband Frank “Scotty” and her oldest son, Frank, which left a life long void in her heart. Betty is also predeceased by her mom and dad, Alice and George Jackson, her sister Alice Morris, and three brothers, George, William and Frederick. Betty will forever be remembered as a loving and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother to her four boys and their families; Will (Eileen), Joe (Carol), Andy (Carol), and Steve (BJ). Her ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren; Morgan, Jordinn, Gabriella, Corinne, Evan, Austin, Julia, Frankie, Alex, Max, Leah, and Henry will always remember her contagious smile. She is also survived by her sister, Catherine (Bruce) Finley and many nieces and nephews whom she had a positive impact on their lives.
Betty was born in Dundee, Scotland, married in Glasgow, Scotland and settled in Norwich, CT where she had a great impact on her community. Betty will always be remembered for her hard work and service in the Norwich Public School system, Norwich State Hospital and as a volunteer at the Backus Hospital Daycare for 14 years, where she was lovingly known as “Grandma Betty.”
Betty was an amazing wife, mom and grandmother, who thought more about others than herself and taught many the definition of “tough.” Betty treasured her boys, which was evident by her involvement at the Little League and youth football fields. She will truly be missed by many, but most certainly her boys.
