Elizabeth "Betty" Jean Reddington
August 10, 1952 - November 8, 2022
It is with profound sadness that we share that on November 8, 2022, Elizabeth "Betty" Jean Reddington passed away at Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia with her beloved daughter and sister at her side. We are all devastated by the loss of this beautiful and loving woman. She will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Betty was born on August 10, 1952, to Joseph and Elizabeth Palladino (Long) in Ashley Pennsylvania. She spent her childhood in Ashley and sadly lost her father at a very early age. Betty attended St. Leos School through her graduation and remained a member of the Church until her passing. Prior to retirement, Betty was a dental assistant for Callahan and Bergey Oral Surgeons where she made many wonderful friends.
Betty leaves many behind to miss her deeply. Surviving is her loving husband, Ronald Reddington, with whom she celebrated 30 years of marriage in May of this year, daughter Amy and son in law James Pyrah of Mountain Top, son Ronald Reddington of Ohio, Grandchildren Kaylee Reddington, and Cole, Jordan, and Luna Pyrah. Brother Joseph (Barbara) Palladino, Sisters Maureen Danko, and Mary (John) Engleman. Betty also leaves behind nephews Joseph and Jason Palladino, Godson/nephew Jack Danko, niece Paige and nephew Conor Engleman, great-nieces Julianna and Hanna Palladino, and she was anxiously awaiting the arrival of great nephew Beau Danko. She also leaves behind an aunt, uncles, many dear cousins, all of whom she loved very deeply, and her beloved Yorkie Charlie Brown.
Betty was preceded in death by parents Joseph Palladino and Elizabeth Long, stepfather Raymond Long, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins who were undoubtedly waiting with open arms to accompany her to eternity.
Betty loved her family beyond words and so enjoyed spending time with them. Whether it be vacationing, shopping, chatting, enjoying holidays together, cooking and baking and teaching her grandchildren and nieces and nephews how to make her famous dishes, or playing a serious game of "pennies". Betty could always be found surrounded by her family. Taking over the role of family Matriarch after her mothers passing was an honor she truly upheld in every way.
Our world will never be the same without her. To love Betty and be loved by her was the greatest blessing and the hole her passing has left in our hearts will never be filled.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Leo's the Great Church, 33 Manhattan Street, Ashley on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 at 10:00 am
