Betty L. Marcus, 87, of North Canton passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 6, 2018. She was born June 5, 1931 in Denver, Colorado to the late Homer and Jesse Davidson.
Betty was much loved by her family and friends. Her caring, generous and compassionate nature made her a cherished mother, grandmother and aunt. "Grammy's" life purpose was her family and nothing made her happier then spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren. We are grateful to be left with so many beautiful memories.
