She was born in Flushing, NY in 1933 and was the daughter of the late Frederick and Elizabeth (Schmitt) Meyer.

Betty retired from the New York City school system as a teacher and lived in Schroon Lake for many years after her retirement. Betty was a very active member of the Schroon lake community where she volunteered for the Meals on Wheels program, was a founding member of the Adirondack Marathon, was a past president of the Schroon Lake Historical Society and was an active member of SonRise Lutheran Church in Pottersville. In the 1970’s she worked along side her husband at the Camp of the Pines, a Lutheran children’s camp.

Betty’s love for the outdoors and the Adirondacks was evident in how she spent her free time;  boating on Schroon lake, cross country skiing and painting were but a few of her passions.Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her husband John Osolin who passed away June 2012.

Survivors include her four children, Andrea Schweiger (William) of Long Island, John Osolin (Linda) of Hillsdale, NJ, Ruth Duvall (Michael) of Queensbury and Nancy Tamm (Steven) of Queensbury.  She is also survived by nine grandchildren and a brother, John Meyer of Whiting, NJ.
