Elizabeth Betty McKinnon. 75, from Haverhill, Massachusetts passed away on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 after a long battle with cancer.
After eloping to Hawaii, Betty spent the rest of her life with her husband and best friend, Ron McKinnon. They enjoyed every day of the 33 years that they were together and showed everyone who knew them how wonderful true love can be.
She preferred to do anything not involving a cubicle; from driving school buses when her girls were young, to driving a wheelchair van for the disabled until she was 65, then working with the elderly until she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 73.
Known to many as “The Cruise Queen”, she would spend weeks researching and planning the 42 cruises taken with the family as well as too many other trips to count. She loved meeting people and would have them telling her their life stories within 10 minutes.
