Elizabeth “Betty” Mitchell Zannoni, 94, of Marietta, Ohio and Grantsville, WV, died Monday, March 23, 2020 at Selby General Hospital. She was born on September 17, 1925 in Wilmington, DE, to Vance and Esta Wink Mitchell. Her family roots were in historic New Castle, Delaware where she grew up and which she visited often.

Betty graduated from Goldey-Beacom College and was an executive administrative assistant before she became a mother. In her years in West Virginia, Betty was active in the community as a member of the Calhoun General Hospital Auxiliary, President of the Grantsville Civic Club, strategic player on the Bridge Club and later, Chair of the Social Committee and the Resident Representative to the Board at Glenwood Retirement Community in Marietta. She enjoyed art, painting, flower/vegetable/ herb gardening, classical music, fine wine, birds, cooking, supporting the arts, and spending time with her grandson and the family dogs.

She is survived by three children, Lisa Zannoni of Raleigh, NC, Pier Bocchini of Parkersburg, WV and John Zannoni (Jackie Bradley-Rippey) of Knoxville, TN; much loved grandson, Peter Bocchini (Angela Braceros) of Huntsville, Alabama; sister Jean Vanarsdalen; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Peter J. Zannoni, whom she married on July 3, 1948; brothers, Vance Mitchell, Jr. and Andrew Mitchell; and sister, Dorothy Mitchell.

Abiding with government recommendations for social distancing during the COVID-19 Pandemic, memorial services will be held at a later date.

Pier and Family
Pier, I don’t know if you remember me from when I worked at Maint. for WCS. You might remember my children Josh (03) and Carrie (07). I knew your Mom was ill from the last time I had stopped and talked to Toni. My deepest feelings go out to you and your family at this time of sadness. My wife passed away in May. So I have some idea what everyone is felling and going through. Again my deepest condolences
