Betty was a parishioner of Sacred Heart and Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic churches.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Otmar Bohac; twin infant daughters, Mary Paulette and Karen Marie; granddaughter, Erin Crowley; and her sister Ann Walkup of Dallas.

Survivors include four children, Richard Andrew Bohac and his wife Denise of Dallas;Deborah Lynn "Debbie" Crowley and her husband Tim of Austin; Elizabeth "Diane" Housey of Portland, Oregon; Patricia Ann "Patty" St. Jacques and her husband Kevin of Dallas; nine grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

Betty was a loving wife, mother, and Mimi to her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A true Southern hostess and homemaker, Betty always made sure her many guests were well fed, comfortable, and happy. She was a wonderful cook and her many legendary recipes will be cherished by her family in years to come. A thoughtful listener with a gentle sense of humor and a quick wit, Betty always made everyone feel comfortable.

Throughout her life Betty remained an active member in her church and its organizations. She went to Mass often and recited the prayers of the Rosary almost daily. Her Catholic faith was very important to her and teaching that faith to her family was her greatest gift. For this they will be eternally grateful. Betty lived her life much like St. Theresa of Lisieux, with "great love and little ways". Her sweet spirit and gentleness will be deeply missed.

The family requests in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, 1516 Beverly Dr., Wichita Falls, TX 76309.
