Betty Block of Peachtree City

Betty Block of Peachtree City passed away un-expectedly at age 87 on December 20th, 2013.

Betty was an avid bridge player and reader. She loved to play golf until a few years ago. Her passion for life always included a smile, a friendly “hello,” and a meaningful  “how are you?” She recently became a great grandmother which brought a renewed bounce to her step.
