March 3, 1937 ~ October 23, 2023
Resided in: Mount Sinai, NY
Elizabeth “Betty” Knodel joined her daughter, Stacy, in Heaven on October 23, 2023.
Betty spent most of her life caring for and loving her family. Fred and Betty joined their lives in 1962 and spent 61 years together. Their precious daughter, Stacy, went to Heaven on May 13, 2013.
Her son, Rick Knodel, was and always will be, a man who brought much pride to his parents. Rick and his wife, Donna, have raised two beautiful twin boys, Chris and Matt, who are the light of their grandmother’s life. Betty has always cared deeply for her family and up to the end of life, treasured every moment spent with them.
While raising two children, Betty worked in various positions which allowed her to spend most of her time with her children and husband when they needed her. She chaperoned dances, carried all the baseball and softball equipment, sat endlessly at field hockey games, baseball games and hockey practices.
When her husband retired, they moved to Pawleys Island, SC where Betty spent many years at The Lakes at Litchfield, rising to the position of Marketing Director and retiring from there in 2013.
Betty hosted her son and family in Pawleys Island and then Murrells Inlet as often as they could get away and spent many happy hours visiting Rick, Donna, Chris and Matt in New York over the Christmas holidays. Being there brought more love and admiration for Rick and his family to last forever.
It’s always sad to lose a family member and Betty wanted Fred and Rick along with his family, to know she will be sharing their lives from Heaven. Chris and Matt, always keep your eye on those yellow butterflies in Spring and Summer. I will be hitching a ride on one of them to check on you both.
