Obituary for Betty L. Bjorkman

The strongest woman we know, Betty Lorraine (Hughes) Bjorkman, age 82, returned home Saturday, November 24, 2018 to be with God and those she loved in heaven especially her Mom and her grandson, Chad.

Cherishing her memory and holding her close in their hearts always are her beloved husband of sixty-one years, Roland P. Bjorkman of Foxboro, her daughter Linda and her husband Rick Hagan of Meredith, NH, her daughter Lisa and her husband Arthur ‘Chic’ Holbrook of Uxbridge and her son Paul Bjorkman and his wife Lynne of Mansfield. Loving grandmother of Brandon, Holly, Laura, Travis, Ashley, Hannah, Lindsey and the late Chad. Great Grandmother of Scarlett, Emma, Liam, Greer, Evelyn and Austin. Sister of the late Alfred S. Hughes, Jr. Also survived by many beloved nieces, nephews, countless friends, and her treasured dog who brought her so much joy, Moose.

Betty was born on March 27, 1936 in Boston and was a graduate of Roslindale High School. She was employed as an administrative assistant for the former Lechmere Sales of Dedham. She married her husband Roland P. Bjorkman on May 12, 1957 at Sacred Heart Church in Roslindale. She was the daughter of the late Alfred S. Hughes and Louise P. (Brogna) Hughes.

Betty’s sparkle, her spunk, her ability to speak her mind and her ability to make the best possible deal before the seller even knew what was happening are qualities known to all who knew her. She was a fighter in all aspects of her life. Betty loved yard sales, bargains and spoiling her dog. She loved boating on Lake Winnipesaukee and her time in Moultonboro, NH which she considered her second home.

Words don’t do justice to how much she will be missed. Godspeed Betty, Mom, Gram. We will see you again in a land that knows no tears.
