Elizabeth "Betty" B. Arcano

Elizabeth “Betty” (Bock) Arcano, 93, of Southington, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 2, 2021, at her home.

Betty was born in Hartford on April 17, 1928 to the late Henry and Hilma (Menzer) Bock and had been a Southington resident since 1943.

After raising her children, Betty entered the workforce as a home decorator at G. Fox. She had been a Stephen Minister with FCC Southington and spent many years at the Noah Webster House in West Hartford as a docent and a museum teacher with long-time friend, Mary Jane. She enjoyed chocolate martinis and will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother to her family, whom she fondly called, “a good tribe.”

Betty is survived by five children: David Arcano and Geri of WA; Kathy Arcano of Southington and Richard Friswell of Branford; Joseph “Tim” Arcano and his wife Brenda of MD; Stephen Arcano and his wife Anne of NY and Peter and Amy Arcano of Colchester; 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Henry “Hank” Bock and his wife Veronica of FL. She was predeceased by her longtime companion, Robert Simpson and her former husband, Dr. Joseph T. Arcano. She was predeceased by her beloved dog, Calvin.

Betty’s family would like to extend a special thank you to her loving caregiver, Naledi, for her compassion, friendship and the outstanding care she provided to Betty.
