Betty Haldeman obituary
Tragically, Betty passed away on Saturday October 2 2021 due to a horrific accident. We are devastated. She was the very foundation of our household, my best friend, my partner and my confidant in all life matters. It will take a while to process the enormity of this loss and to figure out a path forward. We grieve not only for ourselves but also for the many friends that have expressed their sympathies and feelings of loss as well.
As it seems untenable in this era of COVID we are choosing not to have an organized gathering at this time but hope to have a memorial/celebration of Betty when the pall of this pandemic has lifted.
Betty was loved and respected by many more people than I can count. To me she was one of the purest human beings to walk the planet. She made a huge impact in my daughter’s life and development, she was fiercely loyal to her family and as I said above she was my partner and confidant in all life matters. I have never been more comfortable around anyone else in my life.
Although this may be woefully insufficient, Carol (Betty’s sister), my daughter Amy and I have put together a slide show that attempts to capture the things that Betty treasured most: family, friends, gathering and preparing food, the outdoors and her pets. As we put this together it became apparent that everything is compatible with pets.
Thank you all for your thoughts and may one day our hearts be healed.
