Obituary

Betty J Bouford (Lail), 84, passed away at home on June 2, 2024 surrounded by family and friends.  Betty was born in Granite Falls, NC but lived in South Carolina, Florida, Arkansas, Indiana, and Illinois before moving to the Dayton, OH area in 1992.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Mabel (Hubbard) Lail and her daughter, Deirdre Johnson.  Betty retired from civil service at Wright-Patterson AFB where she was an executive secretary.  She was known for her attention to detail and organization skills.  She was a long-time volunteer for the local chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA).  In that role, she managed all administrative functions for a variety of events including their annual conference and trade show, InfoTech.  Profits from that conference provide college scholarships for local students in the information technology fields.  Betty was well known in the AFCEA community.  She was a wonderful woman who gave her all with a smile and a side of sassiness.  Everyone knew Betty was the real boss of the InfoTech Committee and respected her dedication and hard work.  If you wanted something done the correct way, Betty was the woman for the job.  She loved playing cards of all kinds, dancing, reading, editing, traveling, baking (Bakin’ Betty), and her teal Corvette.  Left to cherish her memory are her husband, David Finnerty, her sisters Doris Adams of Winter Haven FL and Linda Kapitan (Ron Cattelan) of Tipp City OH, two nephews, one niece, and too many friends to count.  Betty chose not to have a viewing or funeral.  She wanted to be cremated and her ashes interred in the family plot in North Carolina with just a simple, private graveside service.  Betty would like those who knew her to remember her in any way they choose but to do so with a smile.
