Betty Wertz

August 27, 1943 ~ April 20, 2020 (age 76)


Betty Ruth (Weaver) Wertz



Betty Ruth (Weaver) Wertz, age 76, went to be with the Lord on April 20, 2020 due to congestive heart failure. She was born August 27, 1943 in Fishertown, Pennsylvania to James Earl Mundorff, Sr. and Ethel Violet (Brown) Mundorff. She attended the Bedford Area High School and was part of the Class of 1961. She married her current husband Paul Wertz on August 6, 2015 in Winchester, Virginia.


Betty was a through and through people person and spent many years as a waitress in the food service industry. She started off her career at the Howard Johnson’s North Midway Bedford, Pennsylvania location. Later on, she spent many years waitressing in Breezewood, Pennsylvania at the 76 Truck Stop, as well as, at the Landmark Restaurant, Hoss’s and Denny’s restaurants of Bedford. She always had a knack for not only remembering a customer’s orders to a “T”, but also customer’s names and personal details. This ability aided her in creating a special rapport and exceptional quality of service with everyone that she waited on. Despite working full-time, she managed to be a full-time mom raising four children.


Betty was of the Protestant faith and attended the Liberty Independent Baptist Church located just outside Everett, Pennsylvania along Route 30. Her faith showed in her unconditional love and acceptance of people no matter who you were or where you were at in life. She always found the good in everyone when you were around her.


Betty is survived by her brother James E. Mundorff, Jr. of Alum Bank; sisters Eva V. Howell of Bedford, Pennsylvania and Charlotte J. Garcia-Aboytes of San Antonio, Texas. Sons LTC (R) John D. Weaver and wife Shella L. Weaver of Bedford, Pennsylvania; granddaughters Brittney N. Weaver and Alyssa L. Weaver; great granddaughter Alivia R. McQuait of James Creek, Pennsylvania.

(Weaver) Sabo and Gary Taddy Jr. and granddaughter Courtney Marie Burkett and husband David; great grandchildren; Jacobi J. Burkett, Raegan E. Burkett; Malachi D. Burkett; Brooklynn Burkett.  Sarah Sabo and Kaitlyn Sabo; Sons Mark Harold Weaver of Shellsburg, Pennsylvania and Daniel Earl Weaver and wife Sandy Weaver of Mann’s Choice, Pennsylvania; grandson Isaac Weaver of West Virginia.
