Age 74, of Lewisburg, passed away with her children by her side on Saturday, October 17, 2020 after a lengthy battle with COPD. She was born August 5, 1946 in Dayton. She was the daughter of the late Sylvia C (Ronald) Boger and Glenn Howe. Betty was the youngest of her 3 siblings and she was a 1964 graduate of Lewisburg High School. She married Donald Booso, Sr. in 1964 and was employed by NCR & Standard Abrasives before retiring from McGregor-Surmount in 2014. Her favorite colors were pink, yellow and teal. Her memory will live on especially when we hear the songs, Rocky Top & Bluebird. She will be thought of often and we will smile every time we see a blue jay. We will laugh and shake our heads as we remember the sass she brought to most conversations. She loved spending time with her family, watching soap operas & NASCAR, crocheting, reading, crossword puzzles, BINGO, camping and cheering for her children & grandchildren during sporting events. Her favorite holiday was Christmas. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by a sister, Suzanne Rismiller; sister-in-law, Mary Howe; maternal grandparents, Grace (Kunkle) & Cebary Brown; and by the father of her children, Donald D.
