Elizabeth Arnold

The Wethersfield Historical Society sadly notes the passing of long-time member and one of the first inductees into the society’s Volunteer Hall of Fame, Elizabeth Arnold. She died on October 1 at the age of 104. The society would like to extend our condolences to her family and friends. The following text is from her obituary:

“After retiring, Betty devoted herself to volunteer activity at the Wethersfield Historical Society, where she was a stalwart member of the Education Committee. Many residents and visitors remember her tours of the Old Burying Ground, her Thanksgiving portrayals of “Goody Pilgrim,” and her many presentations to school and public groups; she was one of the first two inductees into the Historical Society’s Volunteer Hall of Fame.”

She has left the Wethersfield Historical Society and the wider world a better place for her presence.
