PITTSFIELD- Elizabeth E. (Pomeroy) Delphia, age 93, a resident of Berkshire Town, died on Saturday, November 19, 2022.
Born in Wilton, Maine on September 13, 1929, Elizabeth was the only child of Edward and Eda Jellison. She was a 1948 graduate of St. Joseph’s High School and went on to work for 50 years for the former A.H. Rice Silk Mill. Upon her retirement, Betty worked for JC Penny for about 4 years.
An avid volunteer, she spent many years helping with the Lanesboro Town Elections and volunteering at the Pittsfield City Hall. She loved going out with her friends, especially to events with lunch, and was a wonderful friend to all who knew her.
Spending time with her family was a great priority in Betty’s life. She looked forward to every holiday where her family was gathering together. Mrs. Delphia travelled extensively and often shared memories of her trips, especially the one she took to England. A kind woman, Betty knew how to have fun and even as she got older she never slowed down.
She is survived by two sons, Clarke Pomeroy (Diann) of Cicero, NY and Glen Pomeroy (Colleen) of Lanesborough, MA, 8 grandchildren to include Matthew, Nicholas, Jason, James, Christopher and Amber Pomeroy, her great grandchildren, Deanna, Erik, Alyssa, Samantha, Kile, Jaycee, and Brett as well as another great grandchild on the way. She also leaves her Delphia stepchildren.
She was predeceased by her middle son, Gordon Pomeroy who died May 26, 2014, her first husband, Donald Pomeroy who died in 1979 and her second husband, Lawrence Delphia who died in 1991.
