Besides spending time with her family, she was an avid gardener. Betty Ann also loved her time spent at her home by the sea in Conimicut and had a special place in her heart for her dog, Angel, and her cat, Cuddles, to whom she affectionately referred to as “her kids”.
In addition to her husband of over fifteen years, she is survived by her devoted children: Robert Monte and Lisa Marie Monte-Barry.
