Betty Elaine (Reiber) McKenzie, loving wife and mother, 94, of Ord St., Salisbury passed in peace on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at home. She was born July 2, 1924 in Meyersdale, the daughter of Dalton George and Stella Ruth (Baer) Reiber.

Betty was a loving wife and mother to all, not just her children. She was always welcoming with a smile and an eagerness to provide whatever was needed, a place to stay, food to eat, or a loving embrace. Betty was well known and loved in the community. She will be lovingly remembered for her kindness, compassion, dedication to her home and family, and her beautiful singing voice.
