Betty May Fry, age 99, passed away peacefully on July 14, 2020. Born in Milton, PA, Betty received her undergraduate teaching degree from West Chester State Teacher's College, PA (now West Chester University) and her Masters of English from The Pennsylvania State University. Betty taught school in Milton before forging out on her own and settling in Fair Lawn, NJ, where she taught middle school English for more than 40 years in both the Fair Lawn and Maywood school districts. Throughout her career, Betty shared her joy and knowledge with all of her students and colleagues. She was passionate about travel, and each summer joined her close friends in visiting places all over the world from the pyramids of Egypt to the bustling streets of London and, of course, the sandy shores of the New Jersey coast. A passionate reader, she was involved in the College Club of Fair Lawn, the Book Club of Fair Lawn, and a memoir club. Betty will best be remembered for her feisty spirit and love of friends and family. Her nephews Robinson G. Fry and Horace B. King, nieces Marian Eves, Patricia Lee, and Karel Untermeyer, many dear friends, as well as many great and great-great nephews and nieces, survive Betty.
in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Betty’s memory to the Maurice M. Pine Free Public Library, 10-01 Fair Lawn Avenue, Fair Lawn, NJ 07410.
