Betty was born in Gardiner on Sept. 21, 1948, the daughter of James A. Heath and Phyllis (Newton) Heath. Betty graduated from Gardiner Area High School with honors, class of 1967.

Most importantly, she dedicated her life to her family, always showing support in every dream they pursued, she was always thoughtful, she listened without judgement, she gave without expectations; a truly selfless person with a genuine love for everyone she knew. Those who knew Betty were truly blessed.Betty was predeceased by a son, Byron C. Stevens III; her parents and her brother, James E. Heath.
