John W. and Katherine (Krug) Mayer, Sr. She was a 1954 graduate of Draper High School and was employed for several years at the General Electric Company, before choosing to stay home and raise her family. Relocating with her family to Auburn, NY in 1971, Betty worked at the Cayuga County Saving Bank before returning to Rotterdam in 1985, working as an Au Pair and a Schenectady City School Aid for several years. She cherished her family and was always encouraging and proud of their achievements. Betty always reached out with love, support, kindness, and caring, a friend to all. She treasured the memories and special times spent at her Sacandaga Lake summer home. Her famous carrot cake was a much-requested favorite of her children and grandchildren. She was predeceased in 1997 by her husband, Donato ‘Daniel’ Zotta, whom she married on May 4, 1957; a sister, Katherine Geddes; a dear friend Jim Strazza.
