Please note
Betty Spadaro September 18, 1918 – May 2, 2022 I Love: To smooth the soft fur of a purring cat, To taste the luscious juicy red strawberries, To smell fresh bread baking in the oven, To listen to musicals performed on stages large and small, To observe sprint race cars in formation being led around the track, To become acquainted with people from places near and far I have never known, To travel to all parts of the world, To work with members of various organizations, To sail out in my pontoon on Glen Lake, To play bridge to pass the time with others, To entertain groups of all sorts, To shop for clothes that coordinate, To play my piano to entertain myself, To read about lives of famous people and their legacies, To create objects of soft clay, To go horseback riding amid rows of trees on an early spring morning To square dance to the call of “Climbing the Golden Stairs”, To cruise on the aqua waters of the Caribbean on a sunny day, To take pictures of African animals-zebras, lions and elephants, To write letters to my friends afar, To plan for a Merry Christmas for my son. All these have helped to make my life a happy one. Betty

So saddened to read of Betty’s passing in the Times Union today. I was privileged to be one of Betty’s student teachers from Oneonta when she taught 3rd grade at Altamont School in 1967. I learned so much from her. Pat and she were so kind to me…having me for dinner, helping me get my car repaired. Betty and I also shared the same birthday so every September a birthday card would arrive from Betty with a lovely letter filled with all her various activities.
Betty was a special lady. Prayers and condolences to all her family and friends.

Betty was my fifth grade teacher at Altamont Elementary School. She was a wonderful teacher, who never forgot any of her students. In recent years we reconnected and I was privileged to attend her 100th birthday celebration, as well as visit her at her home on Glen Lake. Occasionally she would call to check up on me and she did so as recently as this last Christmas.
Betty was an inspiration to all who knew her; a true treasure.
