Betty "B.J." Butz, age 93, went home to be with her Lord on Saturday, December 21, 2019. She was living in the Chambers Pointe community at Menno Haven on Philadelphia Avenue, in Chambersburg, PA. B.J., born in Cleveland, OH on June 11, 1926, was the daughter of Carl O. and Florence M. Moss, and sister of Carl Moss, Jr. (deceased). She graduated from West Tech High School in Cleveland in June of 1944 where she had perfect attendance and was involved in the Victory Corps, Victory Knitters, the Junior Red Cross, Choral and Friendship Clubs. After graduation, she trained and served as a volunteer in the Nurses' Aide Corps of the American Red Cross in the Greater Cleveland area, and also trained to be a radio operator during World War II.

Mike and Leslie, I enjoyed talking to Mrs. B as I called her while spending time with my dad at Chambers Pointe. She was engaged in several activities and always seemed to be busy going to a program or playing Scrabble with Bobbie. She had a great smile and will be missed. Thoughts and Prayers! Candy

I have such fond memories of Mrs. Butz from my school years as friends with Cathy to a visit I had with her a few years ago. She was a wonderful person and I share my sympathies with her family. I know how much she will be missed!
