She was the wife of the late Charles Wesley "Tooter" Fritz, who predeceased her in 2006. Mrs. Fritz was formerly employed with the local sewing factories and in the cafeteria at the former New Windsor Middle School.

She was a member of Bark Hill Bible Church, Union Bridge. Betty was a charter member of the New Windsor Fire Company Auxiliary, where she served previously as president and chaplain.
