Betty had 5 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and 1 great great granddaughter. She worked for many years as a typist and secretary in the Los Angeles area. Her passion was her grandchildren. She loved being outdoors, having picnics, camping and traveling in the U.S. She retired in La Mirada, California in the late 1970's. Her husband of many yrs died of cancer before they could enjoy much of their golden years. She lived at La Mirada Landmark for many yrs. She used this time to spend with friends, her beloved grandchildren, playing bridge, pool exercising and some travel. She also loved shopping. After a series of small strokes, she moved to Lodi, California, to be close to her grandaughters and great grandchildren. She was moved Reno/Carson City to live out her life and to be cared for by family. She was diagnosed with Alzheimier's the last year of life. Her enjoyment in Nevada was going for rides in the car, seeing wild deer alongside the road and looking towards the Sierras. Her last Christmas she sat in a recliner watching it snow and fondly remembering her beloved Fairbury and good friends. She no longer remembered names of her loved ones unless prompted but she was surrounded by love and she felt safe. She died Valentine's Day from aspiration pneumonia in Carson City, NV with her eldest granddaughter by her side.
