We have learned through her husband, Jack Donovan, of Lake Lure, NC, that Bettina Wolff died on October 27, 2016, at their home, assisted by Hospice. She was 89 and had suffered failing health for many years.
Bettina was born in 1927 in Amsterdam, NY. She had been an active member of Swannanoa Valley Friends Meeting in Black Mountain, NC in the early 2000s.. Earlier, she had attended Asheville Friends Meeting.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by three children: Eric, Doug, and Jennifer Wolff. Before coming to North Carolina, Bettina and family spent many years at Olney, Ohio, where she was an active member of Olney Friends Meeting and Olney Friends School.
Her special Quaker interests included Powell House, in NY State, the Alternatives to Violence program, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Friends General Conference, and SAYMA—the Southern Appalachian Yearly Meeting and Association. She will be remembered by her devotion to these causes by all who knew her.
According to her wishes, a memorial service has not been planned.
