Elizabeth (Betty) May Rabzak, 78, of Lancaster passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2017. Born in Reading, PA on April 20, 1938 she was the daughter of Clifford “Bud” and Elma Connell.

Betty was a voracious reader who loved summers spent at their house on Lake Wallenpaupack in the Poconos, where she enjoyed boating, swimming and soaking up the summer sun. She was a dog lover and enjoyed her poodles, Suzy and Fifi, and bichons Cali, Mandy and Molly over the years. Betty enjoyed watching movies, shopping and traveling and especially their many trips to the Caribbean.

Condolences to the Family

I am sorry to hear about Betty leaving us.  I found the obituary on Wednesday and made a point to go to the viewing.  I went this morning, only to find out it was last week.  I wanted to come and pay my respects to her and to you, but I’ll have to do it this way.  The last time I saw her at brunch she seemed fine…smiling and perky as usual.  This was quite a shock.  My sympathies go out to all of you and will say a prayer for her.  She will be missed.
