“Mama”, as she was known to those who loved her, was a kind and loving soul with an awesome personality and great sense of humor.  She was very hip, always keeping up with the latest trends and entertainment news.  She loved music, old and new, loved dancing... especially the jitterbug, loved following her family on her Instagram account, very much enjoyed dining at Dutch’s Daughter, loved baking biscotti, enjoyed her monthly get-togethers with the “Honeysuckle Girls”, but mostly... LOVED HER FAMILY.

Betty is survived by five loving children; John Fasiska, also Leticia Fasiska, both of Naples, FL; Karen Hobson, also James Hobson, both of Frederick, MD; Andrew & Judy Fasiska of O’Fallon, MO; Nanci Weakley & Sean McKee of Montgomery Village, MD, also Stephen Weakley, Sr. of Frederick, MD; and Susan Fasiska & Arnell Byrd of Silver Spring, MD.
