Betty Joe worked at Microcircuit Engineering Corporation for approximately 25 years. She was production manager for most of her employment. Prior to that she worked at Inductotherm and Sybron.
One of Betty Joe’s great accomplishments was getting an article in the Pineland Tribune for working with a group of ladies to make masks during Covid 19. Betty Joe purchased a mile of elastic to make the masks. She meets with these lovely ladies every Friday for the Pemberton Twp. Quilting Guild. Betty Joe has made over 30 quilts. During her stay in hospice, she dedicated quilts to young children in the hospital. Betty Joe is also a member and secretary of the Presidential Lakes Civic Association. She took part in community clean ups and other events. Betty Joe took classes to become certified to work on the Response Team.
