ENFIELD – Elizabeth A. “Betty” (Staples) Gualtieri, 87, left this world to join loved ones in the next on March 5, 2020, Johnson-Memorial Hospital, surrounded by her daughters.

In addition, she leaves behind her beloved grandpets, many cousins, nieces and nephews, and too many honorary daughters and sons to name. Betty spent her last week surrounded by love, much laughter, and wonderful stories from people whose lives she touched. Her family expresses their deepest gratitude to the staff of Johnson Memorial Hospital, who took excellent care of her right up until the very end, and looked after her family as well.

I cherish the time I spent with Betty and her three cats. She so loved those cats. I will remember the long talks we had, watching "Animal Planet" together and just enjoying each others company. She was a wonderful woman and I shall never forget her. Rest in Peace, Betty. God Bless you. Joan Baldyga Brown

One of the things I'll miss the most about Mom is her laugh. She had a great laugh, really loud, we used to say she sounded like she was bucking like a chicken and she would laugh and say, "My delicate, bell-like laugh!" It earned her yet another nickname of Buck Buck Betty. No matter how tough the going was for either one of us, we could get each other to crack up. I'm so grateful Anna caught that on video.
