Betsy Will Be Missed By All



I was saddened to read of Betsy's death in today's Boston Globe - what a loss at a young age (hey, 74 seems young these days).  A delightful woman, full of ideas, purpose, and means, she was indeed someone for everyone.  Betsy and I came into contact many times during my years at the College, and each time I came away with as much as I had given in terms of ideas about the positive impact that technology would have on the institution that we both loved.  I thought that the Globe's obituary captured many aspects of Betsy, and her contributions will live on.

Best Wishes,

Flick _______________ William F. Coleman Professor Emeritus of Chemistry Wellesley College

    Betsy was such a magnificent woman! She will be missed for her warmth, intelligence, insight and drive.  Her smile brightened a room. Her words made us sit and listen intently. My sincerest condolences to Bud and the entire family.  I hope the incredible memories she left will provide much comfort at this sad time.

    Betsy was a remarkable woman and she served as a generous role model for so many of us. I first met her when I joined C-200 and we realized that were in the same 5900 Wilshire Building. She was kind and innovative. A talented woman loved by many of us who will miss her forever.
