Obituary for Elizabeth DeLanoy
Elizabeth (Betty) Ann DeLanoy joined her Lord Jesus in celebration of Holy Week on April 12, 2017, at Hospice Care Center in Ormond Beach, FL. Betty was surrounded by her family as she peacefully went home.
Betty was born in Perth Amboy, NJ, on April 4, 1925, to parents Thomas D. and Violet Wilhelm. She was the 4th of 5 children and the last of her siblings to go home to the Lord: brothers William, Thomas, and John (Jackie), and her sister Ida Linden. Betty moved to FL in 1962 with husband John (Jack) and children settling in Holly Hill. Betty also spent a portion of her retirement living in Maggie Valley, NC, but returned to the area about 10 years ago to be closer to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Betty was first and foremost a homemaker, but she also had several careers which included owning diners, working in doctors’ offices, and finally retiring from GE in 1988. In her younger years she was very involved with the youth group at her church and sang in the choir. Betty was very outspoken concerning her faith in Jesus, Betty loved to travel, go the Beach, visit Epcot, and daydream of her childhood spent in Wildwood, NJ, at the bungalow with her grandparents.
