Please share a memory of Elizabeth to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Elizabeth "Betty" Stevenson Hogg, 94, formerly of Salisbury, MD, died on March 3, 2023, at Tallwoods Care Center in Bayville, NJ. Born in Abington, PA, she was the daughter of the late James Hunter Stevenson and the late Anna Frances (Kennedy) Stevenson.
Betty loved her family unconditionally. She is survived by her sister Eleanor Stevenson; sons Steve (Maureen) and Alan (Shelley) Hogg; daughters Beth (Mark) Mills and Ellyn (Richard) Kroon; grandchildren Michael, Mallory (Shawn), James, Suzanne, Hillary, Daniel, Jonathan (Samantha), Elizabeth (Nick), Anna, and David; and great grandchildren Wynn, Jaxson, Chael, Ronan, Will, Bowen, and Callahan. Betty was preceded in death by son Rob (Debra) Hogg, her brother James Waring Stevenson, and her beloved cousin Laura Damico.
Betty graduated from Abington High School (PA), earned a B.S. from Beaver College (now Arcadia University) in Glenside, PA, and received her M.Ed. from then-Salisbury State (MD) College. She taught at the elementary school level early in her career, and middle school special education in later years. After retirement from the Wicomico County (MD) school system, Betty taught GED courses at Eastern Correctional Institution and Poplar Hill Pre-Release Unit (both in MD), special education classes at Salisbury State, and continuing education at the Wicomico County (MD) Adult Learning Center.
Betty's earthly walk could be characterized by love for others, gratitude, and "giving back." Among other organizations, Betty was a member of Kappa Delta Pi (Ed), Habitat for Humanity, Lydia Home Association, Aglow, and Living Stones Church. She also was an active volunteer at and supporter of the Life Crisis Center in Salisbury, MD. Betty lived by faith and led by example.
Betty's consuming interests were the Word of God, praise, worship, and prayer. She delighted in all aspects of nature. She also enjoyed gardening, exercising, walking on the Assateague beach, reading, rescuing stray cats, and shooting hoops. In later life she especially enjoyed travel, including visits to her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who at times lived in varied locations throughout the US and this world.
