(Apr 4, 1919 to Sep 3, 2012)

Elizabeth “Betty” Stewart (nee Juliano)rn “I know of no such unquestionable sign of a sovereign mind as that of tenacity of purpose” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. Never lacking resolve, once Betty had made up her mind she was not one to be dissuaded. But it was that intensity that gave her the drive overcome life’s obstacles. Having lost her mother at the age of three, life on the family farm became much harsher than it had to be. All pitched in just to survive, even the little ones. Even recently, while living in Wells Tannery, PA she moved faster with a walker than most folks without one, which was much like her grandmother, Kathryn Giuliano. rn Shortly after WWII, while Betty was teaching a class for adults at the Steelman School of Business in Camden, she caught the eye of a student named William Stewart. By 1953 they were married. Before his passing in 2004, their lives were blessed by their daughter Arlene Clark (James Coyle Clark, III) of Fayetteville, PA and again by their grandson James Anthony Clark (April Dillman). Betty is also survived by her half-brother Lawrence Juliana and was predeceased by her granddaughter Beth Anne Clark on December 6, 1989, as well as by her parents: Peter F. Juliano and Walley Kynast.rn Come celebrate Betty’s 93 tenacious years (April 4, 1919-September 3, 2012) Monday from 9-11 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside, where the service will be at 11. Interment Atco Cemetery, Atco, NJ.rn
