Betty L. McGinty, born on Feb. 10, 1931, passed peacefully on March 27, 2019, at age 88 after a long struggle with dementia. She is survived by her son, Lane Thatcher Schultz, daughter, Marialane Schultz, granddaughter Jennifer Lane Schultz, great grandson Tyler Blakley, and step daughter Terry Becconsall.
Betty was a kind and generous woman and a single mother who raised a family of four by often working two jobs and sacrificing her own comfort to provide for her children. She overcame incredible challenges and through these struggles, she taught her family resilience, hardiness and a giving spirit. Most of all, she demonstrated that persistence and hard work led to her continual success.
