Betty outlived all her brothers, sisters, and in-laws.
Betty was a member of St. Peter Lutheran Church in Delphos. She worked for over twenty years at Pangles in Delphos and was named “checker of the year” two years in a row. She finally retired at the age of 80 after working at the video and tanning salon on East Second St. in Delphos. She was a great cook and baker. She would take her baked goods to people she knew saying it was always better to give than receive. She was a very kind soul and great listener.
Betty was the greatest mom and grandmother anyone could ask for. She loved to read, especially her Bible. God finally took her home because her work on earth was finished! She never met a stranger, and everyone knew Betty!
