With regret and deep sadness I share the news of the passing of Betty Remick. Betty, the wife of Russ Remick for the past 68 years, died peacefully on March 31. She was 88. Betty is described in her obituary as “a beautiful woman who led a beautiful life and had a beautiful marriage.” Her husband Russ Remick was a legendary Xenia clothing retailer—so much a legend that the Chamber’s Russ Remick Retail-Service Industries Award is named for him. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with Betty, Russ, and their family.
