Rob, might 5’3.75” peak be more possible for Betty?
Editor Rob
Maybe she was more a weak 5ft 4.

Rob, could Betty join the Boston Legal tag?

5’4, average height then, average height now.

I’ve heard many accounts of her progressive thoughts for times back then. May she rest easy, a beautiful soul she was.

Ah, Betty passed on a mere 18 days short of her 100th Birthday.

She had a full and admirable life, but when somebody dies, it's always sad, however old he or she is. It's a time for great reflection.

Betty did, quite predictably, lose a fair amount of height over her long lifetime, but the photo above shows her pictured with some very tall actresses.

Rip. I was really hoping she would make it to 100. She only had a couple more weeks.

Rest in peace. Hmmmm, shrank a good three inches from 5'4 to 5'1 over the years.

99 years old now, how much more height loss could she have?
Editor Rob
3-3.5 inches loss is likely by late 90's

Thanks Rob I've been requesting a page for Mama Betty for a long time. Her peak height of 5ft4 is quite right although I think she dips below it most times. At 98, 5ft1 or even 5ft is plausible.
Editor Rob
She's been called 5ft 4 and 3 going back to papers 40+ years ago.
