September 8, 1929 - February 25, 2017
Resided in Cincinnati, OH
Betty was married to our wonderful Dad Neil F. Mc Hugh for 46 years. They held hands often and kissed each other goodbye twice when leaving, so they could get an extra kiss in. Our parents were an incredible example of true love and lifelong friendship.
God has given us all talents, and Betty's talent was to be a wonderful friend. As an only child of John Adams and Elizabeth Gerhardt, born one month before the crash of 1929, Betty knew and taught us that to have friends you had to be a good friend. At the time of her death, Mom still was in touch with friends Ruth Ann, Tom and Ginny from her kindergarten class, teen friend Fran Carter, and many ladies from the Nativity School Girl Scouts and PTO, with who she lunched once a month. Betty made many of these friends at Nativity while she was a Brownie leader for 17 years. B.J. wrote to her pen pal Stella in England for over 50 years, beginning at age 10, with the two traveling to meet several times. Mom and Dad were life-long friends with Joan and Roger Schneider. For the last decade, Betty has enjoyed activities at Indian Creek with Annette Shea and Mary Ellen and Ray and spent every Saturday night with her "sister" Marilyn Rourke going to church then playing cards.
Betty leaves two daughters: Laurie and Dan Shea, with Grandchildren, Jennifer and Brad Reed and great grandchildren, Jack and Nicholas; Nicholas and Amanda Fangmann, and Chris Fangmann and Molly Smith. Daughter Karen and Paul Laux, with Grandchildren Katie Laux and Scotty Wright-Ah Sam, and Thomas Laux and the beloved Engel family, Suzanne and Michael, with Grandchildren Joseph, Joshua and Emily; and Danny and Mindy Shea, Austin and D.J.
Please join us in a celebration of Betty's life on Thursday, March 2nd at St. Vincent Ferrer Church, 7754 Montgomery Road, 45236. Visitation beginning at 9:00 a.m. followed by Mass at 10:00 a.m. Donations may be made to Nativity School.
