    Betty J. (Franz) Yates passed away peacefully on December 15, 2020 surrounded by the love of her family. She was a sixty-year resident of Chittenango, NY and is survived by her five children, Greg Yates of Morrisville, Sue Jackson (Mark) of Chittenango, Mark Yates (Linda) of Cazenovia, Karen Verne (David) of Morrisville, and Kathy Davis (John) of Fenner. Betty was blessed with 11 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren and was always the Gram they could rely on for treats, hugs, rocking, kisses, and off-tempo songs! She was beautiful, kind, funny, loving, feisty and fiercely independent and will be so greatly missed. Betty loved reading and spending time working in her gardens. Their beauty was only surpassed by hers! There will be no calling hours, a private service to be held at Oakwood Cemetery in Chittenango on Friday, December 18, 2020. Please send contributions in her memory to St. Jude Childrens’ Hospital.
