Betty Elizabeth Jarosiewicz

September 24, 1926 — March 9, 2021

Betty Virginia (Green) Jarosiewicz, 94 of 23 West Railroad Street, earned her Angel wings and went home to be with our Lord, on Tuesday, March 09, 2021 at Mountain View Nursing Home.

She was born in Mount Carmel, September 24, 1926, a daughter of the late Charles and Anna (Geist) Green.

She was a graduate of Mount Carmel High School class of 1944.

Betty was a retired garment worker having worked in many of the local garment factories.

She married Edward (Murphy) Jarosiewicz, in Our Mother of Consolation Church, Mount Carmel, on March 2, 1946. Together they shared 51 years of marriage. Betty met the love of her life while babysitting at 25 West Railroad, next door to where Edward lived when she was just 14. She carried her crush through high school and during Edward's time in the Navy during World War II. They corresponded as he served his country overseas. When he was discharged in January of 1946, they decided it was a good time to get married and they did, two months later. They then took up residence at 23 West Railroad.

Betty was a member of Divine Redeemer Church. She was very active in the community serving as President of the Women's Community Organization. She was instrumental in getting the ice-skating rink built in Connersville, where the tennis courts are now. In the summer, the WCO held dances at the rink for the area teenagers. Betty also was on the committee to start a Library in Mount Carmel, which was started in the old jail on North Oak Street, later it was moved to Second and Maple, and finally on Oak Street where it is today. She was the Chairperson for the Mount Carmel Halloween parade cosponsored by the UNB bank for 30 years before passing it on to The Mount Carmel Eagles.
She was a lifetime member of the Women's VFW Post 2110, and chairperson for the Jr. VFW Girl's Auxiliary in the 1960"s. She was also on the committee for the Mount Carmel Centennial, helping bring in great entertainment and events. Betty was a very religious person who quoted the Bible quite often. She also crocheted many afghans for her family and friends. Betty loved fishing with her husband and her grandchildren. She loved travelling and sponsored many bus trips for the surrounding community for many years. Her favorite pastime was cards and she loved the game of Pinochle. Her love of her garden was quite evident by the aroma of her many shrubs and flowers surrounding her home. Betty sponsored The Red Hat Ladies group in Mount Carmel for many years. She was the Queen Mother of The Crimson Cuties; they met once a month in area restaurants for a meal, laughter, and always ending by playing her favorite game of Pinochle.
