JOHNSTOWN, PA – [Diocesan Chancery] — With profound sadness the Diocesan Chancery announces that Elizabeth (Betty) Beck, the mother of Pani Carol Paproski, reposed in the Lord on Tuesday December, 31, 2019. 

Betty was a very active parishioner of the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church in New Britain and a member of its Protection of the Theotokos Sisterhood, participating in various church fundraisers throughout the years. Betty enjoyed sewing and arts and crafts. Above all, she loved spending time with her family and being involved in her grandchildrens’ sporting events. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
