Elizabeth A. Hart, age 88, of Austin, died Thursday, June 19, 2014 at Sacred Heart Care Center. Elizabeth Ann Enright was born July 20, 1925 at St. Olaf Hospital in Austin, Minnesota. She was the third of four children of William J. and Marian R. (Taylor) Enright.

She was baptized at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Rose Creek. During her lifetime she was a member of all three parishes in Austin. Betty was confirmed at St. Augustine, married at Queen of Angels, and was a charter member of St. Edward.
