2016 Donate Life Float: Floragraph Honoree - Betsy Niles

Donate Life Rose Parade

Betsy was a vibrant and loving woman. She was a giver throughout her 60 years of life and was famous for finding the perfect gift for each occasion. On March 30, 2011, Betsy was walking to catch the train to work in the city and was hit by a van just yards short of the Upper Montclair train station. The following day, Betsy passed away as a result of a serious head injury. The theme of Betsy’s eulogy was: "THE EXACT RIGHT GIFT AT THE EXACT RIGHT TIME", because on the day she died, Betsy gave two complete strangers the exact gift they needed: her kidneys. In doing so, she gave them each another chance at life.
