Elizabeth “Betty” Kiernan of Hastings passed peacefully in her sleep on the morning of Nov. 3, at age 89, surrounded by her family members.

Betty was born in Hastings to George and Mary Kuepa Konkus Mark on Feb. 4, 1933. As one of seven children, Betty developed deep-rooted family values and a lifelong love for her siblings. Despite being the youngest child, Betty was resilient and never backed down when the need arose to defend her siblings.
