Further Comments about Spouse/Partner or Relationship history:

Married 1986 to Columbia University MBA. It is with the most profound sadness that I advise you of the death, on August 30, 2016, of my beloved wife Beti A. Weber from Lymphoma. She was the kindest and fines person I have ever known and the world is a poorer place for her absence. If you are interested, her obituary, which was in the Inquirer, among other papers. follows. It does not exaggerate.
In Memory of
Beti A. Weber (Moskowitz)
July 8, 1953 - August 30, 2016

Beti Weber Moskowitz died at home on August 30, 2016 at 12:50 AM of a Lymphoma. Her funeral will be at 10:30 AM on Friday, September 2nd at Congregation Beth Torah, located at 6100 W. 127th Street, Overland Park, KS 66209 (between Nall and Lamar). Interment will follow at Mt. Moriah Cemetery, located at 10507 Holmes Rd, Kansas City, MO 64131.
Beti was raised in Washington, PA, and graduated Cum Laude with a BA in Economics from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA, in 1975 and with an MBA in Marketing and Finance from Columbia University in New York City in 1977. She worked in New York City for nine years in a series of marketing positions, managing new and established products for Cunard Lines Ltd. among others.
Beti married Jules Moskowitz in 1986 and moved from NYC to Kansas City the same year. Together they have raised two children in Prairie Village: David, 26, now at Georgetown School of Law; and Alex, 24, now in a Masters program in Classical Languages at the Univ. of Georgia. She also leaves behind a son-in-law, Saleheen Salam, two sisters, Ellen Weber and Paula Weber, and numerous brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, and nieces, as well as a multitude of friends.
Beti was a lifelong learner taking Melton classes, studying French at La Causerie, and earning a Fundraising Certificate at the Midwest Center for Non-Profit Management at UMKC in 2013 She attended as many art museum and library talks as she could, read novels extensively, participating in a number of book clubs, and was addicted to magazines which she always passed on to others. She was also an inveterate traveler and had the chance to enjoy many trips with Jules and her boys to New York City, San Francisco, Hilton Head, Paris, London, Vienna, Budapest and Prague, and road trips through Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
After moving to Kansas City, Beti worked in New Product Development at Horizon Group before hiring on at Hallmark Cards, where she worked for 10 years. Following this employment, she became involved in the Briarwood Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association, working closely with the Cultural Arts Program. She later served as the PTSA President for the Center for International Studies, located at Shawnee Mission South High School.
Beti has also been active in Jewish organizations in Kansas City, serving on the board of the Women's Division Jewish Federation,, as a volunteer and Co-Chair for Interfaith Luncheons of the National Council of Jewish Women, and as a member of the Board of Trustees of Congregation Beth Torah, all in Overland Park, KS. Moskowitz is the recipient of the National Council of Jewish Women Emerging Leader Award and the United Way of Greater Kansas City's Mission Award. On June 7, 2015 Beti received the Tzedakah Award [which subsequen to her passing has been named for her] for all she has done for NCJW (National Council of Jewish Women.
Most of all, however, Beti was a lovely and spectacularly kind person. Her calming influence, enduring generosity, and sound advice will be missed greatly by all who knew her.
If you would like to make a donation in Beti's memory, she has asked that you please make it to University of Kansas Cancer Center or the National Council of Jewish Women Kansas City Section. Condolences may be made at www.mtmoriah.net.
