Betty (Davis) Levrat, 99, of Williamsburg, passed away on Thursday, October 14, 2021, at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born on April 15, 1922, in Scranton, PA to the late John and Gladys (Walters) Davis. For her longevity, she earned the Boston Cane Award for the oldest citizen in Williamsburg last spring. She met and fell in love with her late husband, Raymond C. Levrat, who was born in Brooklyn, NY. They lived in West Hempstead, NY for many years, before moving to Williamsburg in 1989 to be closer to their daughter and her family. Raymond died in 2000. Betty's nursing career began as a nurse in the Army Air Corps during WWII. She completed her career as a NY State Public Health nurse working on Long Island. Her caring nature and dedication inspired three younger women in the family to become nurses. Known as Ma Betty or Aunt Betty by many friends, family, and generations of campers at Pinecrest Lutheran Outdoor Ministries, she was devoted to her family; she was the glue that held the family together. Betty was the hostess of most holiday parties and family reunions. Her granddaughters danced from tiny tots through high school. Ma Betty made costumes, attended countless dance recitals and competitions, school events, and graduations. Betty was a devoted Lutheran. She was active at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Holyoke where she served on the altar guild, was part of a quilting group that made quilts for Lutheran Social Services, made a banner that is hanging in the Sanctuary, and loved to make ornaments for the Christmas fair. Betty was an avid craftsperson. She loved to sew (by machine or by hand), and made clothing, including wedding dresses, dolls, and slipcovers. She made numerous quilts. She also loved to paint, stencil, embroider, and crochet. The skill that set her apart from most artists was rug hooking. She was a lifetime member and past president of the Quabbin chapter of ATHA (Association of Traditional Hooking Artists). Betty was a McGown Master hooker and taught hooking at the Hill Institute for many years. She is survived by her devoted daughter, Judith Goodenough and her husband, Stephen of Northampton, her granddaughters, Aimee Goodenough and her husband Ryan Chianelli of Poughquag, NY, Heather Goodenough and her husband Justin Mosher of Easthampton, great-granddaughters who were her world, Madelyn and Samantha Chianelli, and Isabella Mosher, sister-in-law, Virginia Louis, nieces, Marilyn Knowles, Suzanne Shea, Elizabeth Murphy and their families, nephew Harry Colgan and his family, great nieces and their families, Kristin Collins, Allison Roblyer, Janell Unger, and great nephew, William Moore.
