On December 12, 1967, she married Philip H. LeRoy and raised two children: a son, Sean, and daughter, Vonnie.

Betty was known for her quick wit, passion for life, and indomitable spirit. She fell in love with the beauty of the Lowcountry but never lost her passion for the Latin Caribbean of her childhood.

A celebration of her life will be held on a future date.
