Born on Sept. 1, 1926 in Scranton to the late Patrick and Gertrude Schaefer Nolan, Betty grew up in South Side where she formed many lifelong friendships.

There she met her lifelong friends and traveling companions, the late Ann McCarthy and Ann Marie Wagner. They travelled locally and also to many parts of the world. Laughter always surrounded them. Friends made while Betty was a resident at Geneva House also added much joy to her life.

She enjoyed gathering with and serving the community through her participation in St. Paul’s Methodist Church, Dunmore Women’s Club, the Mercy Hospital Auxiliary and the Scranton Century Club.

Betty was preceded in death by her loving and devoted daughter, Patricia Rambo; son, James Dunnigan; her husband and best friend, Ralph Bochicchi; her loving brother, Dr. Gerald Nolan and his wife Maureen.

Betty is survived by her son-in-law, Harry Rambo,; her daughter-in-law, Mary Ann Gilio; her grandson, Patrick Dunnigan and wife Linda; her nephew, Chick and wife Kathy Harle; and other nieces, nephews and friends.
