In 2001, Betty retired, after seventeen years of service, as a Support Worker with The Children’s Home of Peoria. She was awarded their first ever “Employee of the Year”. Through her work at The Children’s Home, she was able to help so many families, despite not having a college education.
She liked shopping, collecting pigs and angels, spending time with her family and cooking for her family. She enjoyed vacationing in Wisconsin with her daughter, Angie, and Angie’s second husband, Jay, and listening to Gospel music, especially The Gaithers.
Betty’s faith was very important to her. She and her first husband, Don, raised their children to know and love God. She attended Eastside Bible Church in Morton. She had an unconditional love for her children, family and friends. She was a “mom to everyone”. She was full of joy and life.
