I was sorry to hear of cousin Betty's passing. I last saw her at the Cornblatt Family reunion a couple of years ago and it was good catching up. She and my mother Eunice remained in close touch until her passing in 2017. Going back a ways, I also remember as a young teenager baby-sitting for the boys and, because they were such a stitch, letting them stay up late. Betty was ok with it but Eddie, well, you know. Good memories.

My condolences to the entire family. I know she will be missed.

Betty was my neighbor and friend, visiting me frequently every week. I missed her terribly after she moved away.
She spoke often of her wonderful grandchildren, who called her regularly and visited from out of town. She was very fortunate to have fabulous sons who taught their children to love, honor and cherish her place in their lives.
She was so proud of both of her sons and their accomplishments, and looked forward to Saul's frequent weekend visits to spend time with her and take care of everything she needed.
My deepest sympathies to her wonderful family.

So very sorry to hear this news. Betty was a neighbor, and when my mom (Marian) became very ill a few years ago, Betty dropped by often to chat with her and provide companionship. Our deepest sympathies to the entire family. Your photo montage tribute to her is magnificent. I know she will be missed by all.

Dear Jonathan & Soo, Saul & Tracy, Sylvan & Janet,
We were so sorry to hear about Betty's passing. Every month we would see Betty at the
Cornblatt Family Circle Meetings. We also saw her at the weekly meetings of The Friends of
the Pikesville Library. We were fortunate to have Betty travel with our group ti Israel eight
years ago. Growing up, I always looked to Betty as my older cousin. She and Eddie were a
model couple. We will cherish the memories we have of your beloved mother and sister.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

One of the great joys of belonging to Baltimore Hebrew was getting to know Betty. She was a delightful participant in Torah Study. Sheila and I extend our deepest sympathy to her whole family. May you draw much comfort from your wonderful memories and knowing that your devotion made her life easier and more fulfilling.

Betty and Eddie were lifelong and dedicated friends of my parents, Norman and my beloved mom, Marjorie z"l from the time my mom was expecting me as new residents in Pickwick Apts near there home, a regular presence in my life as Betty was one of Mom's dearest friends , even a friends to my paternal Grandmother through BCPSS, and even 30 years later at her untimely passing , Eddie and Betty were there through Ed's volunteer work through Hopkins oncology and Betty's calls. A wonderful couple and extended family that I myself as an adult came to know of through Baltimore's ever involved Jewish Community. I know from my many BHC friends how loved and respected they were. May Betty and Eddie's memory be a blessing!

Johnathan & Saul. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She was such a nice, sweet woman. But above all else she was so kind as was your Dad. Your parents were great neighbors and so good to my parents. May you find comfort in your memories and may your mother’s memory be for a blessing.
