Betty Horowitz, a Burlington County resident for nearly 60 years, who taught first grade in the Willingboro and Cinnaminson school districts for nearly 30 years, died September 10 at age 94. Born in Lakewood, NJ she grew up in Brooklyn, New York and earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from City College of New York and a master’s in early childhood education from Adelphi University. Before moving to Willingboro in 1961, she was the director of nursery schools in Valley Stream and Levittown, New York. She was politically and socially active as a member of the League of Women Voters, the Americans for Democratic Action, and a founding board member of the Southern New Jersey Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. In 1972, she was elected as a delegate from Burlington County to the Democratic National Convention. After retirement she volunteered as a docent at the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia. Betty never missed doing the daily and Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle and entered several of their tournaments. She was an avid bowler participating in league competitions with her teaching colleagues. Betty was married for 65 years to Leonard Horowitz, an aerospace engineer and then a longtime junior high school teacher in Cherry Hill, who passed away in 2010. Their shared interests included European travel, politics, current events, reading, bridge, and the arts. They played tennis and swam every summer’s day at their apartment complex. She is survived by her sons, Don (Dr. Janice), a labor arbitrator and a retired New Jersey state government attorney, and Richard (Deborah) a retired educator who was a teacher and a middle school principal at several New Jersey public school districts. Betty had four grandsons: Daniel (Dana), Etan (Daphne), David (Michelle), and Dr. Edward (Amy) ; two great-grandsons and two great-granddaughters. Funeral services will be private. She will be interred next to her husband, a World War II Army medic who participated in the Normandy invasion, at the Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Wrightstown. Contributions in her memory may be made to the charity of your choice. Cards to the family may be sent to the Bradley Funeral Home, 601 Route 73 South, Marlton, NJ 08053

I give thanks for Betty's life because she gave us her son Don's life. Don shared her progressive values and used his brilliant mind to build a more just labor relations system.
