Mrs. Bentley started to work in the department of Plant Pathology in 1960 and was the Administrative Secretary for many years until her retirement in 1981. Betty Bentley had a "strong loyalty to the department with a keen sense of responsibility and a high level of standards" resulting "in a mutual respect and genuine appreciation for her character and dedication to the department". Mrs. Bentley passed away in 1990 and her family established a memorial fund in her name to provide recognition of the outstanding SPA employee in the department each year.
