star April 18, 2022 ~ 17 Nisan 5782



Betty Bass Wolff, 90, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away peacefully on April 18, 2022, surrounded by her family.  Born in Louisville, Kentucky, she graduated from J.M. Atherton High School for Girls.  After attending the University of Illinois, in 1953, Betty married the love of her life, Francis Wolff.

Betty was a true people person and fiercely loyal to her group of life-long friends.  She enjoyed being around friends and cherished any opportunity to attend recitals, graduations, sporting events, theater productions, outdoor concerts, festivals, or any social gathering.  Hosting celebrations for weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays, anniversaries, and other happy occasions brought her great joy throughout her life.  She was proud of her Jewish heritage and was a long-time member of The Temple.

Throughout her 60+ years of marriage to Francis, Betty enjoyed traveling throughout the U.S. and Europe.  She especially enjoyed visiting California, where she had the unique opportunity to win a new car on The Price is Right, a memory she treasured.

During her latter years, Betty made many new friends at Grove Pointe Assisted Living, including residents, caregivers, and staff members.  During her final days, Betty received excellent medical care at the Palliative Care Unit of Baptist Health Louisville and Hosparus Health.

Betty was predeceased by her husband Francis Wolff and parents David & Yetta Bass.

Survivors include children Mark & Robin Wolff, Jonathan & Stephi Wolff, Sheldon Wolff, and Elise & Craig Goldstein; grandchildren Jacqueline & Michael Friedman, Jordan Wolff & Samantha Sodden, Aaron Wolff & Keith McDowell, Emily, Isaac & Levi Wolff, and Arianna, Drew & Maraya Goldstein; great-grandchildren Matthew & Remi Friedman; and sister Beverly Leifer.
