     Betty J. Kaurudar, 94, Martinsburg, passed away Friday morning, October 25, 2019 at Homewood at Martinsburg, where she resided for the past 17 years.

     She was born in rural Alexandria, daughter of the late Roy A. and Mabel A. (Yocum) Eastep. 

     Betty will be lovingly missed by a daughter, Nancy C. Miller of Lititz; four sons: James D. and John M.
