Elizabeth Alice "Betty" Tunney, age 98, of Corning, NY died Monday, November 28, 2016 at Absolut Care at Three Rivers in Painted Post, NY. Betty was born on January 6, 1918 in Corning to Thomas and Elizabeth (Driscoll) Tunney. She was educated in local schools: St. Mary's, Corning Free Academy (Class of 1935), and Elmira College (Class of 1940). She taught business in several New York State high schools including North Tonawanda, Savona, Corning Free Academy, and Corning East High School before retirement in 1975. Betty lived in many New York communities including North Tonawanda, Corning, Penn Yan, and Bath, but had a special love for her Crystal Beach home on Keuka Lake. Betty was proud of her Irish heritage, visiting her father's home in Ireland on several occasions. She was part of a tight-knit group of friends, "Friends and Relations" whom she loved as family, all of whom predeceased her.
