Betty Fort, a long time Watsonville resident, died on May 13 at Watsonville Community Hospital. She was 79.
Mrs. Fort loved to work in her garden and to paint. Until recently she enjoyed golfing with her friends and was a part of the HUB Club where she would go on camping trips. She was an active member of Beta Sigma Fi ‘Xi Beta Epsilon ’and enjoyed outings with her sorority sisters.
Mrs. Fort loved most of all spending time with her great grandchildren. She will be remembered as a hard worker with a great sense of humor. Her no-nonsense attitude and love for her family will always be remembered. She will be greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.
She is survived by her mother Vada K. Scott and two children Claudia R. Frederiksen and Donald R. Fort, her brother Larry Christian and 3 grandchildren.
Mrs. Fort was preceded in death by her husband Albert T. Fort, her father Andrew (Jack) Christian, and her granddaughter Alisa Frederiksen.
