Grittner, Elizabeth "Betty" Anne

March 18, 2007

Mrs. ELIZABETH "Betty" ANNE (Lewis) GRITTNER, 80 of Norton, Vermont, passed away on Monday March 13, 2007 at the Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook, New Hampshire. Mrs. Grittner was a steadfast cancer survivor, who ultimately succumbed to a sudden heart condition. Mrs. Grittner was born Elizabeth Anne Lewis on April 23, 1926, in Baltimore, Maryland to William Lewis a Methodist Minister from Wales (Cymru) and Mabel (North) Lewis. Mrs. Grittner completed high school in Baltimore and then attended Western Maryland College in Westminster. Soon thereafter, she met Stanley E. Grittner and married in April 1957 in Glyndon, Maryland. In accordance with her wishes, she will be buried in dual ceremonies at Western Cemetery in Baltimore, Maryland and Kettle Falls Cemetery in Kettle Falls, Washington (dates TBA). Given her vitality and strength of character, it seems only fitting that she take charge of resting places on two sides of the continent. Donations in honor of Mrs. Betty Grittner may be made to the Norton-Averill Scholarship Fund, Norton School District, PO Box 269, Norton, VT 05907, or, in support of elderly patients to the Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital, c/o Kim Daley, 181 Corliss Lane, Colebrook, NH 03576. Condolences may be offered to the family on-line by going to www.jenkinsnewman.com. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Jenkins & Newman Funeral Home.
