betty  corley

Betty Jean (Salatino)Corley of Weirton passed away on Wednesday, December 6, 2023, at Valley Hospice Care Center North. She was 80 years old.

Betty was born in Wellsville OH., on June 4, 1943, a daughter to Dale and Jean Blackledge Miller.

She was a 1961 graduate of Wellsville High School and had worked most of her life in restaurants but most recently as an auditor in the hospitality industry.

If you ask her family, they will say that Betty was the most caring and giving person they had ever met. She was constantly worrying about someone and their well-being, making sure they had what they needed to comfort their life and always keeping them in her prayers.

She was a faithful member of the Weirton Heights Church of Christ and participated in their women’s group making “Boo-Boo” Bears for the children at Weirton Medical Center and a staunch supporter of animal rights, donating to many causes throughout the years.

Betty was involved with doing God’s work on earth, her selfless acts she demonstrated and the love she had for people will be missed by so many individuals.

In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her stepmother Gail Booth Miller, sister Carol Arend, and her brother-in-law David Arend.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband Darrell Corley, children Rocco (Sonya) Salatino, Rick (Andrea) Salatino, Carmen (Anthony) Blavos all of Weirton, Lori Salatino of Newark, OH. sisters Linda (Barry) Hallas of Boardman, OH. Judith Ruland of St. Petersburg, FL. Kristie (James) Burns of Wellsville, OH. six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Betty’s funeral services will be held at the Weirton Heights Church of Christ on Friday, December 15, at 11 am.

Inurnment will follow in Highland Hills Cemetery.

Minister Steve Smithbauer will officiate.

Betty’s cremation will take place at the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, 3219 Main Street, Weirton, WV.

    Betty and I became friends while working together to make the bears. Betty was such a joy to be with and she kept us laughing til we cried with her real life stories. Some were sad too. Betty loved helping people and she would do anything for anyone. I will certainly miss you Betty! Gone but not forgotten. Love and prayers to Darrell and family.
