American social worker who, on the evening of 10/19/1961, while returning from a vacation in Montreal to her home in Portsmouth, stopped to eat with her husband about 170 miles from their home in Colebrook. Upon leaving the restaurant at 10:05 PM., they sighted a UFO and stopped to look; a strange humanoid creature with large slanted eyes looked back. They jumped back into the car and "drove like hell." The next thing they knew, it was several hours later and they were several miles away from where they had been. Their trip home following the incident was uneventful, but within a short time they began to experience nightmares. They sought psychiatric help, and under hypnosis, gradually began to remember being abducted and forced to undergo medical examinations. Betty drew a star map that the creatures had shown her and lectured for 30 years on their "Interrupted Journey" before retiring in 1991. In 1975, their story was portrayed in a TV movie with James Earl Jones playing Barney and Estelle Parsons portraying Betty.
She was married to a black man, Barney, who worked as a postal worker in a Boston post office; he died in 1969. Both were active in Civil Rights and the Poverty Program.
