Now That's Dedication

Adam Bernstein

Dorothy Betz, a Georgetown U associate professor of French, died April 13 at age 70 of a torn aorta. Her husband, Paul Betz, an emeritus professor of English at Georgetown, reported the death to The Post today.

Her last words to her husband, as she was wheeled into the operating room were, "The mid-term exams for my Intermediate French students are on the desk at home. Take them in tomorrow and administer them to my students."
