Betty Jean Bobolia, née McCoskey, age 90 of Lombard. Beloved wife of 68 years to Paul Bobolia; cherished mother of Linda (Tim) Halleckson, Karen (Richard) Berger, Mary (Dan) Coco, Barbara (Harold) Cazaubon, and Lisa (Sean) Kerns. Devoted grandmother of Stephanie (Mike) Gorecki, Stacey Berger, Corinne (Sarah) Berger-Clark, Tony Coco, Hannah (James) Garriga, and Stephanie Coco. Fond Great-Grandma of Theo and Gwen Gorecki. Big sister to Pat (the late Mary) McCoskey and Donald (Carole) McCoskey, and Aunt to many.

Betty was born and raised in New York where she graduated from Cochran School of Nursing and began a nursing career. After finding her soulmate Paul, the newlyweds relocated to the Midwest where they raised their family of five daughters. After a number of years, Betty resumed her nursing career at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital where she worked until retirement. After that, she remained a familiar face around the hospital as a dedicated volunteer.

Betty will always be remembered for her kind nature, fun loving spirit, great love for her family, and her famous potato casserole which nobody has been able to duplicate. She is already missed but she has left us with a treasure trove of amazing memories.
