Betty Skelton



Betty was born in Covert and developed polio when she was nine years old. After graduation in 1950, she attended Western Michigan University and the Twin City Business College. She met and married Robert Green in 1956 and moved to Battle Creek Michigan where they still reside. Betty and Bob have two children and four grandchildren.

Betty began volunteering when the children were in school with the Cub Scouts, Campfire Girls, 4-H, Sunday School and helping at the Lakeview General Hospital and Leila Community Hospital. She has been with the Hospital Auxiliary for 23 years. Betty was recently honored for her over 16,000 hours of volunteer service.

"Betty never refers to herself as a Polio victim, but as a Polio survivor," recounts June Clearwater, a fellow worker, "She does more volunteering than most people with two good legs. She has a smile for everyone and finds something to do or say to brighten their day." A Volunteer Co-ordinator, Mary Nagle said: "I have, known Liz' for 10 years and have found her to be outstanding in whatever position she holds. She has been president of the auxiliary four different times. She brings a bright cheery outlook to everyone. She is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and dive into whatever work needs to be done."

We are pleased to induct Betty into the "Hall of Fame" for her many hours of Volunteer work.
