Betty Bosi Memorial

Betty Bosi (1915-2012)

Betty Bosi, the Washington State Liquor Control Board’s longest tenured employee, passed away on November 13, 2012. The Seattle Times recently posted Betty’s online obituary. You can read that here.

Betty retired from the Washington State Liquor Control Board in 2006 at the age of 91 after 61 years of working in stores throughout the Seattle area.  A remarkable life and dedicated employee, Betty will be missed by all who knew her.

The WSLCB honored Betty for her six decades of service at a recognition event in June 2012. She addressed those in attendance and told anecdotes of work life over her many years at the LCB. 

Remembering Betty

She sure lived an incredible life. I am so glad I got to meet her.

I was fortunate enough to work with Betty and was always amazed at how hard working she was. When I worked with her she was in her 80s at that point and her level of energy coupled with her great sense of humor always made her fun to work with.

It was always interesting hearing about the liquor board’s old days. She recalled the period when she worked at the West Seattle Liquor Store back when Scotch was being rationed during war times and people would be lined up around the block and also helping out from time to time at the DC in the bottling of Liquor Board brand spirits.

An amazing lady and a dedicated Washington State Liquor Board employee! She set the bar for most of us. So honored to enjoy a breakfast with her last Sunday for the monthly LCB retirement brunch!

I worked with Betty for 30 some years at the Liquor Board and just saw her at our retirement breakfast. She was a wonderful lady, always positive, always with a smile, always helpful and one of the best employees the Liquor Board ever had. She would look at me and say, I trained you Lori and in many ways with her work ethic she did. I truly enjoyed and loved her and she will be mightily missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
