Elizabeth A. Van Woert

1932 — June 22, 2020

Elizabeth Ann (Kelsey) “Betty” Van Woert, age 88, formerly of Delmar passed away on June 22, 2020 at The Teresian House, Albany, NY after a brief illness. She is a 1950 graduate of Bethlehem Central High School. In 1955 she graduated from St. Peter’s Hospital School of Nursing where she was employed as a pediatric nurse. She spent her life following her nursing mission of “serving as a compassionate and healing presence”, not only with her patients, but with all those she met and the hearts she touched. During her free time, she enjoyed worldwide traveling, boating, fishing, and skiing in Vermont, as well as playing tennis with friends and family. She most enjoyed welcoming a new baby into her family, and loving each and every child with open arms. Her devotion as a wife and mother will live forever in our hearts for many generations. Elizabeth is preceded in death by her parents Alfred H. and Winifred C. Kelsey of Delmar, NY; her high school sweetheart and husband of 64 years Richard Holmes Van Woert, Sr (Dick) and her sister and brother-in-law, Edna W. McNary and Robert E. McNary. She is survived by her nine children Deborah Phelan (William); Richard Van Woert, Jr. (Susan); Sharon Mable (Leon); Timothy Van Woert (Sherilynn); Sheila Elario (Joseph); Mark Van Woert (Lori); Elizabeth Scavo (Louis); James Van Woert (Christine); Christopher Van Woert (Maureen), along with 22 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandchild and several nieces and nephews.
