Betty J, Landerkin passed away on Tuesday, March 22, 2022, just shy of her 94th birthday. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, she attended the Institute of Notre Dame (Nancy Pelosi’s alma mater).

Betty loved to read, loved dogs and loved to travel, especially with her dear friend, Doris Lake. A few of her highlights were taking a wind jammer cruise in the British Virgin Islands, a trans-Canada rail trip from Vancouver to Toronto in a glass domed gold car, trips to Alaska and snorkeling in Costa Rica.
