Betsy, 86, a daughter of the late Elmer and Edna Keiper, was born in Reading.
Betsy was a devoted and loving mother and grandmother. She is survived by two daughters; Cindy Albrecht of Sinking Spring, and Marybeth Scoboria of Exeter Township, wife of Robert. Betsy greatly enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren Russell, Elizabeth, Alyssa, Sophia, Luke and Christopher, and her great-grandchildren Claire, Lucas and Jaxson, who she showered with love and affection.

Betsy was a lifelong resident of Berks County, where she and Russell raised their two daughters. She was a graduate of Gov. Mifflin High School. For many years, Betsy and Russell owned and operated the former Brewery Inn in Reading, a signature dining destination that featured homemade Italian food served family style. The LaMarca family worked together to create the unique atmosphere of The Brewery Inn, with Betsy running the front of the house, Russell cooking, and their two daughters waitressing, creating many fond memories for them and their dedicated customers.
