Elizabeth “Betty” Jean Ferguson was a caring and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend. In the comfort of her home and surrounded by a loving family, she passed away peacefully the morning of Monday, November 9, 2020 at age 90.
Born to Thomas and Ann Dixon Shearon on January 30, 1930 in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, Betty is now reunited with the love of her life, Ronald Duane Ferguson Sr., her husband of 54 years.
Every day Betty displayed that her real and abiding passion was her family. She was the co-owner and secretary of Ferguson Heating and Air conditioning, supporting Ronald and her sons from the time of founding until her retirement in 2017. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and creating delicious meals and family favorites such as spaghetti and raisin cookies. Betty also loved the Lord and was an involved member of the Pine Run Presbyterian Church in Allegheny Township for over 60 years.
She will be lovingly remembered by her three sons: Ronald (Barbara) Ferguson Jr., Joseph (Elaine) Ferguson, and David (Traci) Ferguson; grandchildren, Ronald Ferguson, Sara Ferguson, Kimberly Ferguson, Karen Ferguson, Christina (Chuck) McCrea, and Nicholas (Alena) Ferguson; and great-grandchildren, Emily Hasbrouck, Olivia Hedden, and Johanna McCrea.
In addition to her parents and beloved husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, Joseph Frye; and sister, Lois Choltko.
Betty was loved by many and will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Pine Run Presbyterian Church, 1117 White Cloud Road, Apollo, PA 15613
