In her twenties, Betty married John Francis McGrath of Waterbury, Conn., who was a lieutenant colonel in the Army, stationed at Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn. They had two girls, Lynn and Nancy McGrath. After the war, the family moved to the small city of Summit, N.J. where John McGrath started a chamois leather tannery in nearby Newark. They had a son, John Francis McGrath Jr. The McGraths belonged to the Canoe Brook Country Club, where both enjoyed playing golf.

During the summer of 1959, the family experienced two tragic deaths. Betty's father John Naudin died from a sudden heart attack while on a June fishing trip near Montreal on an excursion with fellow members of the Gloversville Elks Club. Her husband John McGrath died in his sleep, suddenly and unexpectedly in August. He was in his mid-forties. Within a year, Betty moved her young family to Park Avenue in Manhattan.
