Elizabeth “Betty” Munley Fields, 84, of Ocean Pines, formerly of Baltimore, passed away on Sunday, November 10, 2019 after the long goodbye of Alzheimer’s. Born on November 16, 1934 in her beloved Scranton, PA she was the daughter of the late Joseph & Mary Albert.
She was a proud graduate of St. Mary’s High School and worked at the Scranton Dry Good. She married Donald Munley and moved to Baltimore, MD where he was employed at the Bethlehem Steel Shipyard till his passing in 1974. Together they were volunteers at the Brooklyn Curtis Bay Little League, umpiring and working in the concession stand for many years. Their home had an open door, welcoming neighborhood children and adults alike considering all to be extended family.
“Ms. Betty” as she was affectionately known also worked in school cafeterias in the Brooklyn Curtis Bay area to include Benjamin Franklin #239, Maree Farring #203, and Curtis Bay Elementary #207. It was Curtis Bay Elementary that she met the second love of her life, Eddie Fields. They retired to Ocean Pines in 1999. Betty worked at the Expresso Wave Coffee Shop where she never met a stranger. She had an infectious love for life that was the hardest part of losing her to Alzheimer’s.
