Betty Ann Saltwell died peacefully in her Park Ridge home surrounded by loved ones on January 10, 2019. She was born on July 12, 1923, in Sioux City, Iowa, daughter of Forest Ward and Lillie Gertrude Cairy. She received a bachelor’s degree from Morningside College where she worked as the assistant to the president until she married her devoted husband, E. R. “Salty” Saltwell, on February 14, 1955. Salty’s career with the Chicago Cubs provided them a wonderful life and many memories. She was the marvelous and selfless mother to Cairy (Thomas) Brown and Susan (Scott) Traylor. Her greatest gift was the special bond she shared with her grandchildren, Caroline and Steven Brown and Jackson and Catherine Traylor. Betty is remembered as a loving and fun aunt by her nieces and nephews. The amazing caretakers were treasured by Betty. Salty and family will celebrate her life privately.
