Betty Lessard sold Betty's Pies in 1984, but in the 30 years since then, she remained the face of the Two Harbors institution. For a time, she hostessed at the "world famous" restaurant she started, and she graciously greeted any customers that approached her during her weekly breakfast visits. Betty's Pies still stands on Highway 61 north of Two Harbors, weathering 60 years of North Shore winters, three owners, one relocation and two failed attempts to expand south. The restaurant will likely live on, but its beloved namesake Betty passed away last Thursday at the age of 90.
