Betty Jo Herr

Betty Jo (Rhoads) Herr passed away at home Saturday, November 5, 2016 after a short illness. She graduated from Corning Free Academy in 1953 and met the love of her life on April Fools Day 1954. She and Danny married June 4, 1955 where they built a home, raised their family, and shared 58 years of marriage.

Betty Jo had a short career as a secretary at Corning Glass Works but her life was dedicated to being a wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. She was predeceased by her love, Danny, in November 2013, and parents Charles and Eleanor Rhoads. Betty Jo is survived by son Gordon (Mary) Herr of Athens, Pa., daughter Brenda (Ronald) Ervay of Erin, grandchildren Adam Herr, Kyle McIntosh, Kathryn Herr, Ryan McIntosh, Annetta Herr, Madasyn Herr, and sister Sandra (Robert) Baldwin of Horseheads.

At Betty Jos request there will be no calling hours and a private family service. A celebration of both Betty Jo and Dannys love and life will be held in the Spring.

The family would like to thank CareFirst Hospice for their care and family support including Melissa, Heidi, Marilyn, Wendy, Laurie, Courtney and Alisha. Thank you also to special friend Cathy Grabinski. We could not have kept her at home without you all.
