Betty Merola, age 82, passed away peacefully August 25, 2020.  She was born December 12, 1937 in Croghan, NY.

Later, her family settled in Rome, NY where she attended school. After graduation she worked as a secretary on Griffis AFB in Rome, NY where she met her husband, Clem Merola, who was stationed on the base there. They were married on June 29, 1957.

Shortly after they were married, the newlyweds moved to Clem’s hometown, Staten Island, NY where they raised a family. After Clem’s retirement as a police detective for the Port Authority of NY & NJ they moved to Florida, where they lived for 32 years. They have been happy to make their new home in the Dana Hill Community for the past 3 years. Betty thoroughly enjoyed her new home and community where she made many new friends and was well liked by all.

Betty enjoyed cooking, puzzles, camping with family and friends, cruises, singing and having fun. She loved comedy, telling jokes and making people laugh.

Betty is survived by her loving husband, Clem Merola; her brothers, Harold Marolf and George Marolf and her sister, Jean Marolf; 4 children, Ann Marie Rivera, Richard Merola, Teresa Sheffield and Thomas Merola & their spouses; 11 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.
