Houser, Elizabeth "Betty" 91 of Allendale, NJ passed away Saturday, October 22, 2016 following complications of stroke. Betty was born in Monessen, PA, February 7, 1925 to Mary Brithinee and Andrew Lucas. She married Gus A. Houser, May 5, 1948 in Charleroi, PA. Betty grew up in the Mon-Valley area and returned to live there late in her life. She attended Douglas Business College in Monessen, PA. Following her marriage and birth of her first daughter the young couple moved to Ohio with work outside of the steel industry. During her life Betty lived and worked in several Ohio towns including Cleveland, Toledo, and Van Wert. She worked at Dairy Pak in Cleveland, OH. In Van Wert she was an active member of the Newcomer's Club, managed the VW County Hospital Thrift Shop, and enjoyed playing in their Pinochle group. She was an avid reader and loved to visit the Toledo Museum of Art. Following the sudden death of her husband Gus, in 1977, she moved to North Canton, OH to live near her daughter, Andrea. She worked for Seiple Lithograph, Canton, OH while living in the Akron-Canton area. Soon after becoming a grandmother in 1985 she moved to San Leandro, CA to assist in the care of her growing family. She moved again to Attleboro, MA, and Cordova, TN to continue giving loving family support for her three grandchildren. When her family moved to New Jersey in 1998 she returned to the Mon-Valley area and became a resident of Donora Towers. With declining health she was moved to live near her daughter in New Jersey. She was a resident of the Allendale Community for Senior Living, Allendale, NJ since 2012. Her grandchildren have continued to visit and provide loving support for her.

Betty is survived by her sister, Martha Fuoco of Orange City, FL; her daughter and son-in-law Andrea and Jim Hutchinson of Cardiff, CA; daughter and son-in-law Diane and Dennis Stripe of Mahwah, NJ; her grandchildren, Julia Stripe Jaffe and husband Steve of Hoboken, NJ, Thomas Stripe of Cleveland OH, and Greg Stripe of Hoboken, NJ; and her great-granddaughter, Ava Noel Jaffe.
