Obituary

Elizabeth M. McGrath, 85 years young, departed this life on January 23, 2021. Elizabeth, Betty, was born in Greenwich, Connecticut where she grew up and resided until she married Richard S. McGrath, who pre-deceased her, moving to Dutchess County New York in 1957, where Betty resided for the rest of her life.

Betty is the daughter of Francis and Emma (Babcock) Moran. Richard Moran, Harold Moran, John Moran, and pre-deceased Joseph Moran were Betty’s brothers making her the only female in the family. The extended family grew with Betty having many nieces and nephews.

Richard McGrath (Dick) and Betty raised four children of their own, Kenneth McGrath, Colleen Janicik, Linda Kiene, and Patrick McGrath. Being a tight knit family all of Betty and Dick’s children reside in Dutchess County where they raised their children: Michael McGrath, Jeffrey McGrath, pre-deceased Brian McGrath, Heather Farrat, Daniel McGrath, Clifford Janicik, and pre-deceased Sean Janicik. Betty was blessed with great grandchildren: Scarlett Farrat, Colin Janicik, and Cora Jean who will be born in February.

Betty spent her later years with her friend and companion who survives her.

Betty took great pride in her home and her appearance. She loved growing a flower garden every spring.

When I was a teenager I remember walking up to the house to find it always neat and clean, with her friendly smile to greet you.
I used to call her my #2 mom because she had such a mom type kindness, and was always willing to talk to people.
When my son was younger she invited us to her home to share sandwiches at Christmastime.
I still have a tiny glass Precious Moment figurine she gave to me years ago, and I will remember her fondly.
