Betty M. Weeter, age 88, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 9, 2022 at the Clarview Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center at Sligo, PA. She was born in Turkey City, Clarion County, PA on December 17, 1933 to Lawrence L. and Ethel Ketner Shoup.
Betty graduated from St. Petersburg High School in May, 1951 as salutatorian of her class. After graduation, she was employed at the post office in St. Petersburg until her marriage to Carl R.

After her beloved husband passed away in March of 1986, she was employed at Sears Department Store in the Cranberry Mall and, later, at Clarion Electric Supply, a job she loved dearly.
For a number of years following graduation from high school, Betty was the pianist at the St. Petersburg UMC.
