Death Announced of Artist Betty Louise “Betsy” Davies, Formerly of Hadlyme, Studied at Lyme Academy

MARBLEHEAD, MASS. – Artist, fisherman, cartographer, teacher, wife and mother, Betty Louise “Betsy” Davies departed for another adventure Aug. 8, 2022.

Betsy was born April 21, 1925, in Palmer, Mass. It was not to be a conventional, predictable, quiet and orderly life. She had many adventures, meeting them with a zest for exploration, invention and a love of people …

… she caught the eye and heart of cadet David L. Davies.┬áThus began the 81-year epic romance through life and into the hereafter. After retiring from the service, they found roots in Hadlyme, for over 50 years where they made lifelong friendships; and Betsy firmly established a career as an artist after her studies with Dean Keller, Aaron Shikler and Elisabeth Gordon Chandler at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts.

Betsy and David found their dream life in Marblehead …

Betsy’s services will be privately held …
