Obituary of Elizabeth S. Balchus

Elizabeth “Betty” Balchus, 69, formerly of Killingworth, passed away June 3, with her husband, John, of 47 years by her side. Betty was born to Alexander and Carolyn (Kelsey) Szirbik on September 22, 1950 and graduated from Amity regional high school. She met and married John Balchus on August 04, 1973. Betty was a weaver, poet, self-taught musician, played the organ, loved to sing and sported a quick wit! John affectionately refers to his late wife as being a “strong willed person” which helped her through her many difficulties after her accident. She will be most affectionately remembered for how she greeted people “You Make My Day!” and she meant it. So in Betty’s memory, take the opportunity to make someone’s day! Betty leaves behind husband John, a sister Sandy LaItalian, a brother Shawn Szirbik (Deb) and several nieces and nephews. A visitation will be held at Saint Lawrence Catholic Church 7 Hemlock road in Killingworth on Monday, June 8th from 4PM until 6PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday at 11AM at Saint Lawrence, followed by Interment in the Evergreen Cemetery in Killingworth.
