Born March 8, 1929, in Washington, DC, to the late Robert Eli Garner and Bertie Virginia (Ford) Garner, she graduated from Surrattsville High School. Following high school, Betty worked as a clerk for the U.S. Census Bureau. She later went to work at Ross Jewelers in Washington, DC for 11 years before becoming a health aide for the Prince George’s County Board of Education for the remaining 21 years of her career. She was a longtime member of Holy Family Catholic Church, The Women's Club of Annapolis at Heritage Harbour, DESA, and the Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion. Betty enjoyed reading, word searches, volunteering, and spending time with her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 51 years, Joseph Melvin Whittington; and a brother (infant), Robert Edward Garner.

Mary was such a dear neighbor! Chet and I grew to love her very soon after she moved in next door. Always cheerful, grateful and appreciative of anything we shared with her. She prayed for me when I was very ill. She hung a magnet on my door frame with a cross that read "Amazing Grace" I have never removed it! It was her deep faith in God and her complete trust in him that we both loved about her. She lived her Catholic Faith and set an amazing example for all of us to witness. Chet and I missed her when she had to move away and needed more care from Joanne and Rick. I knew she was in good hands. She is now resting in the arms of the Angels, safe with our Lord Jesus and I hope to see her again someday, when we will all be reunited in our heavenly home.
