Catherine (Betty) Brower

By | Obituaries

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Catherine (Betty) Brower, 97, passed into a better world on February 4 at The Springs of Wesley Health Care Center.

Betty was the wife of the late G. Wesley Brower, whom she married in 1947. They lived in Port Washington until his passing in 2002. She then moved to Saratoga Springs 12 years ago to be closer to family.

Betty, as she was known, was the youngest of six daughters born to the late August and Marie (Klob) Faulhaber. She worked in the insurance industry for a number of years but because of a long commute into Manhattan, she decided to work closer to home. She worked at Lord & Taylor in Manhasset and became head of Quality Control.

Retired after 35 years, she became interested and active in charitable projects. Betty loved animals and cared for many abandoned animals during her lifetime.

In addition to her husband and parents, Betty was predeceased by all of her sisters.

Survivors include her nephews, Frank Funk, Richard Miles, Lawrence Funk, Bill Outler and George Outler; nieces, Loretta Smith, Dorothea Salerno and Marie Algozini; 12 great-nephews, 10 great-nieces and many great-great nephews and nieces.

Interment will be private at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements were under the direction of the William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing & Cunniff Funeral Homes of 628 North Broadway (518) 584-5373.
