                    in the house of representatives

                         Wednesday, May 8, 2019

  Mr. WITTMAN. Madam Speaker, I rise today in recognition of Betsy 
Aldrich and her 65 years of service to the Daughters of the American 
Revolution. I would like to personally thank her for her service and 
dedication to our nation.
  Betsy was born in Richmond, Virginia and raised at Shelly in ``Coke'' 
Virginia, where she resides today. She attended Mary Washington College 
for two years and then headed to William and Mary, where she earned a 
degree in philosophy. Betsy went on to teach early elementary school in 
Alexandria, Virginia. Betsy married her husband Robert D. Aldrich in 
1951 and had two children, John Page Aldrich and Dr. Lee Aldrich Rouse.
  Betsy descends from John Page of Rosewell, the 13th Governor of 
Virginia and Thomas Nelson, Jr, a signer of the Declaration of 
Independence. Following in the footsteps of her heritage, Betsy has 
always been incredibly interested in Virginia history and is the only 
surviving charter member of the Augustine Warner Chapter of the DAR 
formed in 1953. I commend Betsy for her work with the DAR over the past 
65 years and am grateful to have someone such as Betsy in our Virginia 
community.
  Madam Speaker, I ask you to join me in the recognition of Betsy 
Aldrich. The Commonwealth is fortunate to have someone with such 
dedication and commitment. May God bless Betsy Aldrich and I look 
forward to seeing her continued success for many years to come.
