Her family moved back to Olean in the 1930s where Elizabeth attended St. Mary’s Academic School and Olean High School. After graduating from High School, Bettie enrolled in the Mercy Hospital School of Nursing in Buffalo, graduating as a Registered Nurse in 1943. She worked at Olean General Hospital for two years before enrolling at the University of Buffalo to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Public Health Nursing, specialty as School Nurse/Teacher. She worked for several years as a public health nurse in Cattaraugus County, as well as a school nurse and teacher in Franklinville. Bettie retired from the Pioneer Central School System (Arcade Elementary School) having worked as a schoolteacher first for special needs students and then first graders.

She was rightfully proud of her education, her career as a nurse and teacher, of her Catholic faith, reaching the age of 100, and of being 100% Irish, according to Ancestry.com.
