Betty lived in her beloved Walton most of her life. Shortly after graduating high school, she became a teller at the Cass County State Bank and worked there until she retired in 1986. She was an active and lifetime member of the Shiloh Lutheran Church and was the treasurer for many years as she was known for keeping a meticulous check book.
Betty and Lloyd enjoyed traveling during the winter months to Florida and Arizona and had quite an adventure when they visited family in Australia and New Zealand. She was always anxious to return home to Gretchen Street where she found true contentment around her family and friends. She enjoyed watching sports, cooking, taking care of her home and spending time with her immediate family. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren brought her much joy. She dearly treasured her friends and neighbors and the people of Shiloh church. She was also so grateful for the love and devotion she received from her care team.
