Elizabeth (Betty) Jane (Reince) Delain, 89, of Casco passed away peacefully at Autumn Fields Senior Living on December 26, 2016. She was born on August 27, 1927 to the late Fabian and Josephine (Charles) Reince. She graduated from Algoma High School. She met her future husband, Vince, when she went to collect on an over-due library book. He was only willing to pay his fine if she agreed to a date. The rest is history.
