Elizabeth Norton Andrews “Betsy”

Elizabeth Norton Andrews “Betsy” died unexpectedly at her home in Paradise, California on Wednesday, September 26, due to respiratory failure from Rett Syndrome.  She was 39 years old. Betsy is the beloved daughter of Robert Andrews and Elizabeth Norton of Susanville, California.  She was born in Chester, California in 1979 with Rett Syndrome, a rare degenerative neurological disease that affects a child’s motor functions and cognitive skills.

Although she could not walk or speak, Betsy led an active lifestyle with her family where she was fully integrated in family activities including biking, hiking, boating and camping.  She graduated from the Pearson Center Community Classroom for special education students in Paradise, California in July 1981.

From 1999 until her death, Betsy resided in Paradise, California, at a group home where she thrived.  The family wishes to acknowledge with deep gratitude the wonderful care she received from all the staff at her Alpine home.

Betsy had a profound influence on everyone who touched her life.  She was known for her sweet disposition and strong spirit which helped her live as long as she did despite the complications from Rett.  She was loved beyond measure.

Betsy is survived by her sister (Kristen) of Friday Harbor, Washington and two brothers (David and Ethan) who reside in Irvine, California and Aromas, California as well as numerous nephews and nieces.

A celebration of Betsy’s life is scheduled for October 6 at 2 PM at her home in Paradise at 1 Carli Court, off Buschmann Road.  For those who mourn her passing, the family encourages you to extend a spontaneous act of kindness to another in Betsy’s memory.  Loving kindness is the essence of who Betsy was.

    Betsy is certainly a joy to be around. She touched everyone she met. Wednesday she heard those glorious words from Jesus, “We done, good and faithful servant.”
