COLCHESTER -- Betty, 94, went on to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 4, 2014.
Betty was born in Flint, Mich., on April 23, 1919, to Myrtle Johnson Lozon and Carl F. Lozon Sr. Betty had many accomplishments in her life. She trained as a W.A.S.P. in 1942, and loved flying her Piper Cub. She was an accomplished singing comedienne and entertainer and performed in many shows entertaining our troops overseas as well as in the States. She moved to Washington, D.C., in 1950, where she continued to perform for dignitaries and military personnel.
Betty moved to Shelburne in 1955 where she opened The Olde Shingle Barn, an antique shop, which she ran for many years. She continued entertaining and was an accomplished artist designing and marketing her own stationary, Vermont Notes, and working in many art mediums. She met poet Robert Frost and he signed one of her manuscripts she had done in calligraphy of his poem, The Gift Outright. Betty, an ordained minister, devoted the rest of her life to the service of the Lord. She traveled to Africa twice to minister to the people there, whom she loved dearly.
