Betty Jean Lonon, age 65, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, May 21, 2020, surrounded by her family. She was born November 8, 1954, in Rochester, New York to the late Robert and Marie Behrns. Betty married her best friend, Van Harold Lonon, on October 14, 1978.


Betty embodied the belief that motherhood was the most fundamentally important work she could do.
