Betty Ann Caralis
July 25, 1936 - July 6, 2012
Betty Ann Caralis, 75 entered into Heaven Friday (July 6, 2012) at Wellsville Manor Care Center.
Mrs. Caralis was born on July 25, 1936 in Andover to Donald R. and Mary L. (Lehman) Kemp. She was a 1954 graduate of Andover Central School and completed Hornell Business School in 1955. In 1968, she married Nicholas C. Caralis, who predeceased her.
Betty worked in customer service for John Harland Co. in St. Petersburg, Fla. for 35 years until her retirement in 2002.
Betty is survived by a sister, Ruth (Fred) Johnson of Savona; three brothers, David (Cookie) Kemp of Avon, Donald E. (Linda) Kemp of Branchport and Ronald R. (Jo Beth) Kemp of Slate Hill; her dear “sisters” at Wellsville Bible Church and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Betty loved to draw and was an avid reader. She enjoyed special trips out with friends for ice cream, fireworks and walking. She greeted everyone on Sunday mornings at church with cheerfulness and spunk. Betty had a lively sense of humor and a spirited personality that will be greatly missed.
Friends may call on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Andover. The funeral service will be held on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the funeral home immediately following the visitation with Rev. Daniel Kenyon of Wellsville Bible Church, officiating. Burial will follow in Valley Brook Cemetery.
