Elizabeth “Betty” A. Wilford, 81, of Morristown, New Jersey, formerly of Long Valley, New Jersey, passed away October 6, 2021 in Morristown surrounded by her loving family. Born in Trenton, New Jersey, Betty lived in Long Valley before she moved to Morristown 6 years ago. Betty graduated in 1957 from Wilfred Beauty Academy in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to become a licensed Beautician. She was a retired homemaker, but held many jobs throughout her life. Her most important job was being a caring Mother and devoted Grandmother. Betty appeared on the famous American Bandstand television show, hosted by Dick Clark, in 1955. She was talented in the art of embroidery, known for her famous oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and enjoyed puzzles and Hallmark channel movies. She is survived by her loving daughters, Suzanne A. Wilford of Hazlet, New Jersey, Tonni F. von Schaumburg (née Wilford) and her husband, Daniel of Morristown, New Jersey and adoring grandchildren, Alyssa von Schaumburg, Michael Ruth, and Victoria von Schaumburg, and many cherished nieces and nephews. Betty is predeceased by her beloved husband, Clark Wilford (1986) and brother, Robert Malinowski (2000). Betty was a friend to all and a Grandmother to many. She will be deeply missed.
