  3. To all of Betty’s family, I was saddened to read that Betty passed away. I worked with her for many years at Unimax, and I remember when I first started there, her son’s cat had kittens and she brought one in for me. Betty also worked with my dad for many years at the International Silver Company. Please know that Betty is at peace and probably talking up a storm with my dad once again. Katie Brosnan Velez
