Betty Y. Gill "The goodness of heart is shown in deed" Our loving mother, Betty, peacefully passed away at her home in Naples, Fla. on July 25, 2000. Her life was filled with family, friends, nature and travel. Betty was born in Lynn, Mass. on June 9, 1920. She graduated from Watertown High School and then from Simmons College in Boston. She believed strongly in the strength and influence of children and later became the media assistant at both Ferrysburg and Lake Hills Elementary schools in Michigan. Betty was an active supporter of the Naples Philharmonic and fed her love of the arts by attending performances, taking classes and learning all she could. Because she was an avid naturalist, she spent many happy hours identifying trees, birds, shells, grasses, and whatever other interesting items she happened to spot. Her collection of rocks, mosses, and sands contain samples from across the country and around the world. The ease in which Betty made and held friends was one of her special gifts and she will be greatly missed by those who knew her. Our Mother was courageous, realistic, and her positive attitude and pragmatic ways allowed her to move with style through life and in doing so, inspired others to proceed with the same determination. She read incessantly, took copious notes, and was willing to share her loves with everyone - both young and old. Our Mother was truly a remark- able lady. Of all the places in the world she visited or lived, she was always happiest near the sea - whether it was leading beachwalks, supervising the "touch and feel" tank at the Conservancy, walking a rocky Maine beach or searching the tidal pools along the coasts. She will be sorely missed. We love you Mom - Betty - Mutti - Grandma: Geof and Linda, Betsy and David, Susan and Bruce, Sally and Tom, Sammy and Muffy, Richard, Martha, Laura and Sarah, Chris and Jennifer, Emily and Abby, Laura and Michael. The family wishes to thank all of our Mother's friends for their kind words, thoughts and prayers. In lieu of flowers, donations in Betty's memory would be appreciated to Hospice of Naples, 1095 Whippoorwill Lane, Naples, Fla. 34102, the John Hay National Wildlife Refuge, Newbury, N.H. 03255 or the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Naples, Fla. 34102.
