Betty “Boop” Primosch died surrounded by family and while holding the hand of her husband of 51 years on September 4, 2019 following a long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Betty was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, friend and more to many, many people and will be greatly missed and remembered.
Betty was born on August 5, 19?? (she did not like revealing her age!) in Brooklyn, New York to parents Ada and Sol Ausfresser. She and her big brother Larry Austin spent a happy childhood in Brooklyn before each found their way to raising their own families on Long Island, New York.
Betty spent the majority of her career working in the travel industry, managing a corporate office for Austin Travel. Her true joy and passion however, was her family. She was a loving mom and wife. She was selfless in every way when it came to family. Her example as a mom is reflected in what became the next joys of her life – her three beautiful grandchildren whom she could never get enough of.
Betty was a loyal friend and always fun to be around. During her and Richard’s retirement years in The Villages, you could often find her dancing, bowling, volunteering at Sumter Place, playing with dogs, or turning strangers into new friends.
Betty is survived by her husband, Richard; daughter, Suzi; son, Jeremy; daughter-in-law, Jamie; and grandchildren, Matthew, Sophia & Sol.
There will be a Celebration of Life at Laurel Manor Recreation Center in The Villages, on September 14 at 1:30pm.
