In her 1952 high school yearbook, Betty had two ambitions. One was to become a stenographer and the other was to later get married. She accomplished both of those goals. After high school Betty worked in Boston at an Insurance Company and loved her job. She married Harold 2 years after graduating high school. She left her job after her first child was born and became a stay-at-home mom for her 4 children. Betty loved baking and was great at it. She usually always had something home made for dessert. She also loved to knit and was even good enough to make her husband argyle socks. But when her neighbor taught her to crochet, she never looked back! She gifted afghans, baby sweaters, booties & baby blankets. Ponchos, sweaters, vests; you name it, she made it. Betty and Harold loved dancing and would go to the French Club in Everett, Chelsea, Prince Palace in Melrose, then on to the French Club in Waltham almost weekly. They enjoyed the many friends they met there over the years. They were such admired dancers on the dance floor. 

Betty was the loving mother of Joseph H Meuse & wife Jeanne, Ronald P Meuse & wife Jennifer, Cynthia L McSweeney & husband Kevin and Janet M Bloom & husband Bill. She also leaves her grandchildren Amy Meuse & wife Heather, Joey Meuse & wife Elizabeth, Scott Meuse, John McSweeney & wife Clara Logan, James McSweeney & wife Nicole, Shannon McSweeney, Billy Bloom and great granddaughter Ava McSweeney.
