She is survived by her husband John (Jack) Cahill, sons Thomas Cahill, Joseph Cahill, Dennis Cahill, William Cahill and James Cahill, and daughters Patricia Kryston and Theresa Susterowitz.  Betty also had ten grandchildren, two step granddaughters, two great-grandsons, one step great-grandson and many nieces and nephews.
