Betty was a dedicated employee at the Fisher Cheese Company and Walter & Sons, Inc. Meats. She was a lifetime member of the VFW #8445 Auxiliary. Betty was an avid Tuesday night Bingo player, and continued playing when she moved into Wapakoneta Manor. She never met a stranger, but her true treasure was her family. She will be remembered as a loving mom, grandma, and great-grandma, who enjoyed spending time together as a family, either at home or at any of their various activities.
The family would like to thank the Wapakoneta Manor for the tremendous care given to Miss Bett.
A private family service will be held and Betty will be interred at Resthaven Memory Gardens, near Moulton. Memorial contributions may be directed to the Wapakoneta Manor's Activity Fund.
