Elizabeth “Betty” May St. John, 84, passed away Monday, September 7, 2020 peacefully at home surrounded by family.
Betty was raised in Bergenfield, NJ, the daughter of George and Elizabeth Moss. She attended Englewood Hospital School of Nursing and earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Case Wester Reserve University where she met her husband Dr. George St. John DDS.
They first lived in Topeka KS where George spent a tour of duty with the Air Force and Betty taught Nursing at the University. They returned to Massillon OH and George started his dental practice with Betty as his assistant. They moved the practice to Champion OH in the late 80’s to be closer to George’s family.
They were blessed with two children Anita and Roger. She was active in the community with Girl Scouts, Blood Mobiles and Amherst Community Church where she was an organist and pianist.
She was preceded in death by her husband George and son Roger and is survived by her daughter Anita St. John-Guello and son-in-law Greg Guello; beloved grandsons Cole, Chase and Clay; sisters Marion Alexanian and Adele Hunt; brothers Mel and Richard (Kris) Moss; brother-in-law Samuel St. John; sister-in-law Joy (Chuck) Carter; many nieces and nephews and special friend Jean Farrington.
The family is especially grateful to Homestead Hospice for their loving care.
