Beverly Jean Axeman

Beverly (Betty) Jean Axeman crossed the bridge on Jan. 29, 2014, among her family quietly and in peace.

Betty was born in Williamsport on March 1, 1934, where she resided until April 2013, when she moved in with her son, Stephen H. Axeman Sr., of Leesburg, Va. She is also survived by another son, Peter H. Axeman Jr., of Williamsport. She has three grandchildren. Betty was the daughter of Elwood R. Ertel.

Betty was an accomplished artist and had done many pen and pencil portraits over the years in addition to designing several houses that were built in Pennsylvania. She graduated from Williamsport Area High school and went work in Washington, D.C., for the FBI fingerprint division until her marriage.

At Betty’s request there will be no service and she wished to be cremated.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to Evercare Hospice & Palliative Care, 12018 Sunrise Valley Dr., Suite 400, Reston, Va., 20191.

Please share your condolences with the family
