In Memoriam: Betty Lee

Hood Quarterly, autumn/winter 2009-10

We are sad to share news of the death of former docent Betty Lee on May 5, 2009. Betty was a member of the first group of docents to join the museum when it opened in 1985 and remained active until she became a docent emeritus in 2008. Throughout her twenty-three years as a docent, Betty shared her kindness and enthusiasm with countless visitors to the Hood. She enjoyed working with all audiences, especially young children. Drawing from her training and her experiences living in Japan, she took particular pleasure in teaching visitors about architecture and Asian art. Even after her retirement from the program, she continued to be a tireless ambassador for the museum. Her generous spirit and commitment to the arts and the community enriched the Upper Valley immeasurably.
