Foundation Mourns Passing of Betsy Fitzgerald
The Foundation would like to acknowledge the passing of a longtime friend and supporter of the Arboretum, Betsy Fitzgerald. She died on February 15, in Seattle, aged 72. A landscape architect by training, Betsy had a deep passion for horticulture and—among her many local volunteer activities—served on our Board of Directors from 1993 to 1999. She was also a member of our Arbor Circle. She is survived by her devoted husband of 48 years, Charles, three sons, and five grandchildren. Read Betsy’s full obituary in the Seattle Times.
