She married Richard Medina after his service in World War II and immediately started raising a family. Their sons, Ricky, Paul and Patrick became the center of their lives. Betty was a stay at home mom and an almost picture-perfect mother to her boys. “I’ve always known I was very lucky to have such a warm, loving mom, someone that gave unconditional love and support. She taught me how to be a good person.” Paul Medina remembers. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, Betty was greatly loved and will be missed by all those whose lives she touched.
