A Tribute to Mrs. Betsy Elliott

In April 2023 we were sad to lose one of the stalwarts of the work of Leaders and Followers Foundation, with the untimely passing of Betsy Elliott, wife of our Board Member and friend Jon Elliot.  Those who attended the National Prayer Breakfast gathering at the Hilton Hotel in 2023 and who visited the Congressional Suite II will have met dear Betsy who was one of the long serving and always smiling hosts. We encourage you to read this tribute to Betsy and view the uplifting service of thanksgiving for Betsy's life.
