Elizabeth "Betsy" Lawton (Huck) Orth lived a life full of love, which she shared most graciously with her husband Steven, sons Tim and Nick, her family and all of her friends.
Betsy worked at a summer camp called Agassiz Village from 1981 – 1988. Agassiz Village influenced her life and helped shape the amazing woman she became. Betsy made lifetime friendships at Agassiz and left a lasting impression on those who she met over the years.
At Agassiz Village, it all starts with a smile and Betsy provided thousands of smiles to kids that needed it the most. Agassiz Village is an overnight, summer camp in Poland, Maine that offers underserved children a safe and healthy environment where their smiles and laughter create lifelong friendships and provide a lifetime of memories.
Agassiz Village campers have the opportunity to embark on a life-changing experience and take with them the same values Betsy taught her Agassiz Village children and her own children: responsibility, self-confidence, service to others and a commitment to learning.
In honor of Betsy’s life and her love and commitment to Agassiz Village, her family and friends have joined together to raise funds for a memorial project.
