Elizabeth Stults

(Apr 18, 1935 to Mar 10, 2012)

Some people pursue happiness, but Betty simply created it. If she walked into a room full of people, it was only a matter of time until she had befriended all of them. If you stopped by her home in Riverside, chances are she wasn’t there; she would always rather be off enjoying the day than sitting around the house. Whether it was a trip to the casino to battle the one-armed bandits, a night playing bingo or poker, taking in a movie or a play or just heading to a diner you could always count her in. Possessing a seemingly never ending supply of energy, although she had retired years before she still had a part time job; not because she needed to work, but because she wanted to. But her favorite way to spend time was with her family. She loved nothing more than to whisk the grandkids away in her red Buick. And it’s not that she spoiled them, but they when their parents said no to something, ask Mom Mom, she always says yes.rn As a young woman, it was on a trip to the roller skating rink that she Betty would meet a Riverside policeman named Albert who was patrolling the area. Before his passing in 1996, their 36 year marriage was blessed by their daughters: Sandra Schimchak (Randy) of Delran and Cindy Hinke (Mark) of Lumberton. Betty’s life was further blessed by her grandchildren: Courtney and Kelsey Schimchak and Brett and Aiden Hinke. She is also survived by her brother Jack Fernsler (Ruth) of WI, sister-in-law, Joyce Stults and niece, Krista Stults, both of Cinnaminson and her boyfriend, Mike Mechikas of Warminster.rn Come celebrate Betty’s 76 wonderful years (April 18, 1935-Mar. 10, 2012) Wednesday from 6-9 PM at the Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside and Thursday from 9 AM at St. Stephen’s Church, Riverside where the service will follow at 10. Interment Odd Fellows Cemetery, Burlington. rn

    We cannot express how sorry we are for your loss. Betty was an angel and still is an angel. She always made you feel so welcomed and part of the party. She will be missed by everyone’s life that she touched. My kids actually told me the other day they called her Mom-Mom. And the greatest part of it is she answered them. Keep your memories close you will always have them and she will always be with you. We love you and are here for you.rnrnMary and Willy Melvin

    I wanted to send my condolences to Betty’s family. Although we never met FACE TO FACE, Betty and I were “phone friends”, and enjoyed catching up with each other whenever I had to call Independent Imaging ! I was disappointed if I called and she was not there. She made me laugh ! She was a delight, I would phone to order film or mailers,( or whatever), and say “Hey, it’s Beth from Central Ortho ” and usually she would say “Well, where have YOU been?”..I will miss her tremendously.
