Betty Ann Armstrong (nee Konkowski) passed away peacefully at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona on January 29, 2021 after suffering a massive heart attack. Born July 1, 1956 to Norbert and Joanne Konkowski in Cleveland, OH, she was a true Betty.
A proud graduate of Maple Heights High School Class of 1974. She was retired but made her living as a billing clerk for the construction trades over the last 20+ years. She worked hard to provide for her daughters the best that she could. She enjoyed traveling, often visiting family in Florida. She was a doll collector, crafter, and fan of Betty Boop (a nickname given to her in high school).
Betty is preceded in death by her parents. She leaves behind her loving daughters Jennifer Fry (Robert) of Chardon, Ohio and Rebecca Gaul (John) of Maricopa, Arizona; three grandsons Ryan and Stephen Fry and Logan Gaul whom she loved to the moon and back; siblings Michael Konkowski (Debbie), Susan Kurta (David), and Brenda Germ (Robert). She was a proud Aunt to Melissa Perry (Jordan) and Emily Collister (Paul), Nicholas Konkowski and Daniel Kurta (Jamie); and a Great Aunt to Veda and Lennox, whom she adored spending time with, Colton and Baby Kurta that she was excited is on the way. She also leaves behind many Cousins and Friends who were a part of her extended family.
To those that knew Betty she had a heart of gold that was full of endless love. She was a true friend and would help whenever she could. She always tried to see the good in people and had a wonderful smile. She would talk endlessly about anything once you got her started. We know that she touched so many in her life and there are many memories that will keep her alive as we go on without her.
Funeral services were private. A Celebration of Life to remember Betty will be planned in the early summer to be held in Chardon, Ohio. We look forward to remembering Betty and sharing our favorite memories together at that time. This website will be updated as that information is made available. The family asks that in lieu of flowers that contributions toward funeral expenses can be made to Jennifer Fry or Rebecca Gaul.
