Obituary for Betty Jane Depp

Betty Jane Depp, 88, formerly of Ligonier, died Friday, December 28, 2018 at Peak Resources Pinelake, in Carthage, NC.

She was born March 14, 1930 in Greenville, PA, a daughter of the late Lawrence R. and Mary E. Reash Reichard.

Betty worked as a secretary prior to marrying Jack Depp, with whom she spent 50 wonderful years. Always a lover of flowers and crafts, she became a floral designer after her children were grown. She had owned and operated her own store, the former Busy Bee Creations which specialized in silk floral arrangements. She enjoyed sewing, painting, bowling, golfing, and modern square dancing. Betty enjoyed traveling across America with Jack. They also traveled to many European regions together including Germany, France, Scandanavia and England. Some of her favorite travel memories were seeing all the flowers when visiting Holland and snow-birding in Arizona. She was a breast cancer survivor, but ultimately passed after an extended illness with Alzheimer's Disease. Betty will be remembered for her determination, strength of spirit and her steadfast love of family.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband: John "Jack" Depp in 2002, twin daughters, Joyce May and Jane Marie Depp, and a grandson, Jonathan Depp.

Betty is survived by three children: Gail (Dean) Ford of Pinehurst, NC, Laura (Quint) McDonald of Latrobe, and Gary (Kim) Depp of Summersville, GA, two granddaughters, Alisha Parr and Loretta Pickel, and four great grandchildren.

Friends will be received Saturday from 11:00AM until the time of service at 1:00PM at the J. Paul McCracken Funeral Chapel, Inc. 144 East Main Street, Ligonier, with the Rev. Dr. J. Paul McCracken officiating.

Interment will follow in the Ligonier Valley Cemetery.
