EAST LIVERPOOL - Betty A. Allison Shelton, of Glenmoor, died Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012, surrounded by her family at the Masternick Memorial Health Care Center following a lengthy illness. She was 75.
A lifetime area resident, she was born in Chester Oct. 7, 1937, a daughter of the late Harry B. and Beulah M. Allison.
