Called by some the "Grandmother of Ufology," Betty Hill and her husband had a UFO/alien encounter in 1961 that was widely publicized. She passed away yesterday at the age of 85 at her home in Portsmouth, NH surrounded by family and friends. Her friend Avis Ruffi (email) sent us this photo of Betty taken at her last birthday party.
Avis writes: "Betty will be missed by many around the world. I was able to make it up to Portsmouth to be with Betty last week and even though I knew the end was near I was heartbroken when the call came. Betty faced her death as she did her life-- with courage and dignity."
