Betty I. Farley

Betty I. Farley, 95 of Perry, passed away peacefully on October 15, 2017 at Conesus Lake Nursing Home in Livonia. She was born on July 16, 1922 to the late Leslie (Doris Watrous) Wright. She is preceded in death by her husband Frederick Farley and sister Mary Kohring.

Betty was married to Frederick for 53 years. Together they established a home and raised their family on Willovue Farm in Perry. Not only did Betty take care of the many homemaker duties required of a housewife, she also worked by Fred’s side harvesting crops and growing their dairy herd.

Betty will be remembered for her years of service hosting church dinners and fund raisers at Perry Center Congregational Church, serving as an election inspector for over 50 years, and according to her grandchildren baking the best chocolate chip cookies ever made. Betty also made the dinner rolls served at the Fireman’s Chicken BBQ dinners which may have been the star of the meal, and not the chicken.

She is survived by sons Thomas Farley of Perry, Gerald (Claribel) Farley of Apopka, FL and daughter Jeannette (Len) Reiland of Eden Prairie, MN; 8 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren; sister Lois Sliker of Leicester, brothers James (Shirley) Wright of Perry, Lawrence (Linda) Wright of Albuquerque, NM, very special nursing assistant Shelley Sparks, along with many nieces and nephews.
