Times West Virginian

—  Elizabeth “Betty” Ellsworth was born in Rachel in 1923 and passed into the arms of Jesus in Claremont, Calif., in May 2013 after enduring complications from a major stroke.

Betty loved her roots in West “by God” Virginia, as well as her Lakers, her church, hot dogs and her family. Betty moved to California in 1953 where she met and married Bob Ellsworth in 1954.

Betty is survived by her daughters, Nancy and Linda, along with several others.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Bob; siblings, Dorothea Poling Brand, Richard Poling and Donald Poling; and her parents, Blaine and Gertrude Poling.
