Betty worked at Sotak's Tavern in Tilton. She loved waiting on the many guys from General Motors and the railroad.
She was a die-hard Cubs and Bears fan, and she loved working crossword puzzles and reading, especially her Bible. Betty was a wonderful and caring lady who liked everyone she met. She always found good in everyone she knew.
Betty will be sadly missed by all who knew her, especially her children and grandchildren. We would like to give a special thank you to Uncle Rick and Aunt Sis, and all their children. They were very good to Betty, and she had a special place in her heart for each and every one of them.
Memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Monday, April 10, at the Chapel in Kennekuk County Park. All friends and family are welcome to attend.
