Betty L. Stroup, 92, of Williamsport, passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at Roseview Center. She was preceded in death by her husband, Luther T. Stroup Sr. on May 20, 2004.

Born Feb. 17, 1928 in Williamsport, she was a daughter of the late Clarence and Mary (Ellis) Fischer.

She was a member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church and volunteered for many years at the Williamsport Hospital. She enjoyed bowling in the women’s league at Faxon Lanes, singing in the choir at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, and was a Girl Scout leader.

Surviving are two children, Charisse Blumberg, of Forest Hill, Md., and Luther “Luke” Stroup Jr., (Amy) of Williamsport; six grandchildren, Loni Stroup, Brandon Stroup, Matthew Stroup, Adelyn Hall, Christopher Stroup, and Ryan Blumberg; seven great-grandchildren; a sister, Cheryl Showalter, of Niceville, Fla.; two nephews, Jason and Eric Cole; one niece, Karol Combs; and former daughter-in-law, Shirley “Bunny” Alberts.

In addition to her parents and husband Betty was preceded in death by a sister, Kathleen Cole; twin grandsons, Justin and Shannon Stroup; and a nephew, Clifford Cole.

A graveside service to honor the life of Betty will be held at Twin Hills Memorial Park at the convenience of the family.
