In memory of Betty Roth

My Great Grandmother, Betty Roth, has inspired me beyond words. She was one of the most resilient and strongest women I’ve heard about. After the loss her husband Eli, A naval lieutenant during WW2, she was heartbroken. However, this did not stop her from raising her son and being extremely successful. She went on to become one of the highest paid female workers at standard oil during a time when women were seen simply as housewife’s incapable of working. She defied the odds and didn’t let anything prevent her from achieving her goals. I continued to be amazed and inspired by her stories and life today.
