Betty C. Ketchum Foundation

Betty KetchumBrought to You by Memorial Elder Health Services & the Betty C. Ketchum Foundation

The Mount Washington Valley Adult Day Center is made possible through a unique collaboration between Memorial Elder Health Services and the Betty C. Ketchum Foundation. The generosity and vision of the Betty C. Ketchum Foundation is responsible for the creation of the facility and its long-term prosperity. Betty Ketchum was a long-time resident of the Merriman House at Memorial Hospital where she received compassionate and skilled nursing care in her later years until her passing. 

About Betty C. Ketchum Born and raised in Trenton, N.J., Betty was the only child of George Corliss and Mabel Brown Crossley. She was educated at the George School of Newtown, Pa., and was a 1943 graduate of Wellesley College with a degree in art history. She was married for 57 years to Dr. William Francis Ketchum, who passed away on April 6, 2003, and they raised three children together. Her strong, independent spirit is greatly missed by all who knew her. Attorney Ken Cargill is the contact for the Betty C. Ketchum Foundation.
