Betty Block of Peachtree City

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

Betty was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on January 12, 1926. Upon retirement, she and her husband of 67 years, John, retired to Florida but have resided in Peachtree City for the last 15 years.

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.

In addition to her husband, John, she is survived by Robin Block Devin and her husband, Rick (Hope Valley, Rhode Island), her two sons, Jeff Block and his wife, Karen (Lilburn, Ga.), and  Jerry Block and his wife Mary, (Wayne, Pa.)
