Soergel, Betty June




Betty June (Stanforth) Soergel of Longwood at Oakmont passed away on August 1, 2020. She was 88. Betty was born in Hillsboro, OH on January 11, 1932. She is survived by her loving daughters, Linda (Dave) Sakaluk of Charlotte, NC and Julie (Aaron) Dunlap of Ripley, WV; and four grandchildren, Michael (Betsy) Sakaluk, Tyler (Jackie) Sakaluk, Alina (Nathan) Miracle and Kira Samoilo. She was predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Bob. Of the many adventures Betty had in her life, she was most fond of her travels. After graduating from Ohio State in Occupational Therapy and working at Washington DC General, she and her cousin and a friend took off to explore the world – starting with riding bicycles and hosteling in England. They made their way to Wiesbaden, Germany where she met Bob at the US Air Force Base. They were married and explored more of Europe before returning back to the States when Bob left the Air Force. She raised her family in Pittsburgh. Later, Betty earned her Master’s Degree at IUP and worked for Penn State University as a Financial Aid Advisor. She spent countless hours helping students and learning new things. After retirement, Betty and Bob were fortunate to travel to over 12 countries on 4 continents. They also spent countless hours enjoying their grandchildren. A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
