Betty Armstrong, 87, died on Monday, July 3rd. Betty was a switchboard operator at Carleton from 1963 until 1995, but Betty’s Carleton connection started much earlier. As the daughter of Earl Baldwin, the groundskeeper of Laird Field for about a half century beginning in 1926, Betty’s home throughout her childhood was an apartment in Laird Stadium. Having Laird Field as her front yard helped her to become a lifelong football fan.
A more complete obituary is available on the Bierman Funeral Home website.

Please keep all of Betty’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
