Betty “Grandma B” passed away July 29, 2018, at Pacific Care Center. She was 87. Betty was born May 30, 1931, to Clifford and Lulu Harris in Grandview, Wash.

Betty was active in many things; she loved bowling and reading. She was a member of many bowling teams on the Harbor. She was also a member of the Aberdeen Eagles, Sweet Adelins. She spent many hours volunteering for the March of Dimes and AJ West PTA where her girls all attended.

Betty worked at the Aberdeen Bowling Alley and later managed Swaneez’s and the RibEye restaurants.

In retirement Betty enjoyed watching her kids and grandkids playing baseball, swimming and playing volleyball.
