When I think of those women who left an indelible print on my life...Betsy stands among the tallest as a fair-minded, thoughful leader and mentor, and path-breaking philanthropist at Wellesley College. It was a privilege to be in her orbit. Bety's grace and generosity infused everything she did, and she wore her very good fortune without air or pretense. Being with Betsy was just fun - wherever, whenever, however. Twice my family and I were treated to a visit at the Knapp Ranch -- my then small children (now adults) have the same wonderfully warm memories of Betsy making our visit just right at that magical place.
She changed my life, and will be deeply deeply missed by so many.
