I will always remember Betty as a true friend, who celebrated many joys with myself and my family, as well as her companionship during times of hardship. Betty was steadfast in her faith and love for God, devotion to her family, and her passion for teaching, while continuing her love of learning. Betty believed in her students and colleagues, wishing the best for all. May God hold Betty in the palm of His hand as she prepares for the many heavenly adventures that await her!! Love, prayers, and wishes for Dennis, Donna, Christa, and their beautiful families as they keep Betty alive in their memories, hearts, and minds.

Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to the Begley family. Betty was a one of a kind teacher, tutor and friend. She was the type of teacher who made an impact on her students and on those around her. As a tutor she was at my home every Tuesday afternoon for 7 years. She will be greatly missed. From the Ambrico family, Lauren (2000), Kaitlin (2002) Colleen (2008)

We are so upset to hear of Mrs. Begley’s passing. Condolences to the Begley Family. She was so special to our family, from tutoring through the years to being a dedicated teacher to my kids. She was glamorous, had a great sense of humor, had the perfect amount of tough love and deeply cared for each of her students. It was her mission to make sure they understood how the world worked and prepared them to be active participants in it. She was one of our favorite teachers at St. Joseph’s and was one of those teachers you just simply cannot forget. She made a lasting impact on our lives and we loved her. We send our heartfelt condolences to her family. She was deeply loved. Love, The Scotti Family

Betty, You brought sunshine and laughter to St. Joseph’s every single day. Although it’s been awhile, since we last saw one another, I always knew that the world was a better place because you were in it. God has a special place in heaven for you, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and steadfast advocate for children and their education. You are on my heart always.

Marie Salvietti left a message on August 6, 2022:
At this time, words cannot express the sorrow I have for Betty, an outstanding woman. I had the pleasure of knowing Betty as a parent and coworker. We both shared our love of Social Studies in our classrooms. Her dedication to Catholic education was evident in her teaching and interaction with students.Her sense of humor placed a smile on everyone she met. Betty was never absent and we always laughed that she had too many days banked and never would be paid upon retirement. I know that Betty is in Heaven .A gracious and faith filled woman has a place in the House of the Lord. May God comfort Dennis, Christa and Donna at this time,

You are my very special Angel. Rest in eternal peace my forever friend.

Mrs. Begley was the best teacher. She was my teacher over ten years ago at this point, but she made such an impact on me, and the many other students she had over time. She was so smart and sharp, and I will never forget how she helped me grow as a student and person. Thank you for everything, Mrs. Begley, and I hope you’ve found your German Shepherds up there!

We are so sad to hear the news about Mrs. Begley. She was an amazing woman and inspired us in so many ways ! She was always there to give us advice and help when needed and was a wonderful friend to our mom. She never forgot a birthday or any occasion in our lives and took such an interest in everything we we did! We loved her very much and will keep Mr. Begley and the family in our prayers.

Maureen Carnavos left a message on August 4, 2022:
Betty, my dearest friend! Words can not describe how much I miss you already. We shared so many memories, watched our children grow up, spoke on the phone every day for hours, and worked together to give the students in St. Joseph’s the best Catholic education we could, even when we had to overcome so many obstacles. We were a force to be reckoned with, that’s for sure! You inspired my own children in so many ways and they loved you very much. You were the most stylish woman I have ever met! I am sure you will have God set up a nail salon and Loft in heaven. Rest now my friend and be at peace. You set out to change the world and we are better because of you. I will think of you every day and promise to be there for Dennis and your family whenever I am needed. Until we meet again….

Eddie Schmidt left a message on August 4, 2022:
I’m absolutely heartbroken to hear of Mrs. Begley’s passing. She was a rare bird. Real, with no candy coating of anything. Hilarious. A light on dark days. I was her student 2005/06/07, and she was my favorite teacher - ever. I’ve said it time and time again over the years. It blows my mind that that was half a life ago at this point. I’ve never once forgotten the impact that she made on me, and I feel so privileged to have known her and to have experienced her. My whole family feels the same. God rest her soul
Lori Marando left a message on August 3, 2022:
May you Rest In Peace Mrs. Begley! You are home You were an inspiration to my children while they attended St. Joseph’s School. You were a blessing here on earth to all who knew you. God bless your family during this difficult time. Love, Lori Marando
Jessica Guerra left a message on August 3, 2022:
Mrs. Begley was more than a teacher to me, but a role model. She had such an impact on me and I am the person I am today because of her. She inspired me to be a teacher. I will miss her so much. She will always be safe in my heart. Thank you for pushing me to be the best version of myself. I remember how you would joke with us about singing and dancing in front of us while you taught. On Thursdays the hot lunch was a spicy chicken sandwich. When we went to order it, you insisted that we order it in a southern accent or else we couldn’t get it. You always made me laugh. My dad would always joke about when the War of 1812 was with you. There was never a dull moment with you. You are a very special woman who touched so many lives. Rest in peace. ❤️
Sabourin Family left a message on August 3, 2022:
Going to miss you so much! You were an inspiration to me and my children. Your love and devotion to our children and the tough love you gave them made them incredible adults! Our love to Dennis and you family! ❤️
