Betty Burch Whitcomb of Charlottesville (age 76) passed away at home after a brief illness on January 6, 2017. Her husband and best friend, David Whitcomb, her son Bruce Whitcomb, her granddaughter Macy Baisch, and her sister Jean Burch Kerbey survive her.

Betty brought the same gracious and loving attitude to everything she did. She embraced her family, friends and neighbors. She was drawn to helping others and volunteered her time and talents to many local non-profits including Emmanuel Episcopal Church, the SPCA, and English as a Second Language. She enjoyed playing tennis and tending her garden.
