Betty Jean Archer, age 70, formerly of Colchester, CT, died Saturday, May 21, 2016, at home in Portsmouth, RI, after her courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Betty (“Boop”) was born June 14, 1945, in Hartford, CT, the daughter of Dorothy G. (Goldfarb) Allard and the late Arthur G. Allard, Sr.
In her spare time she loved to crochet and knit, paint, and collect Beanie Babies. But most of all, she adored spending time with her 5 beautiful grandchildren.
The family would like to thank VNS of Newport and Bristol Counties, particularly her RN, Eileen Ryan, and her Home Health Aide, Barbara Levesque.
A memorial service in Connecticut will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice at Visiting Nurse Services of Newport & Bristol Counties, 1184 East Main Road, Portsmouth, RI 02871.
