Statement on the Passing of Betty Quadracci
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele released the following statement about the passing of Betty Quadracci.
I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend, Betty Quadracci. Since moving to Milwaukee two decades ago, I had the privilege of working with her many times to support the many great causes in this community we both love.
Betty’s generosity was never just about her checkbook, she was always willing to roll up her sleeves and get involved. She was also never afraid to speak out when she thought something was unfair or unjust. For both of those qualities and many more, Milwaukee is a better place.
