Betty Jane Macfarlane

August 23, 2009

Betty Jane Macfarlane died unexpectedly August 23, 2009. She was 82. Betty was born February 10, 1927 in Jersey City, New Jersey. She was the daughter of the late Arthur George Jones and Dorothy Meyer Jones of Brewster, New York.

Betty attended Brewster, New York High School and after graduation attended Albany State Teachers College. Betty touched the lives of thousands of children in several school districts including New Jersey, New York, Vermont and Ohio. As she excelled in her teaching profession, she also cherished her role as a devoted wife and mother. Eventually Betty and her husband Peter retired to the peace and tranquility of the Outer Banks.

Left to cherish Betty’s memory is her loving husband, Peter Macfarlane of Southern Shores, her son Scott Lemke and his wife Becky of Austin, Texas, a daughter Linda Moran and her husband Dean of Tucson, Arizona, two grandchildren Eric Lemke and Kristen Hawkins, two great-grandchildren and a host of extended family and friends that will miss her dearly.
