She farmed for many years; then worked as a Federal Meat Inspector and later as a clerk at Family Rexall Drug in Hutchinson for 11 years before retiring. She was a member of the Covenant Church in Dassel for most of her life. She became a member of Elim Mission church when she moved to Edgewood Gables in Cokato. At this time, we would like to thank her caregivers there. She was a member of the Kiwanis Club and volunteered with the Red Cross blood mobile for 6 years. She was in a craft club for many years and really enjoyed her red hats group. Betty spent many years sewing clothing for her children and her grandchildren, as well as color guard uniforms and bridesmaids dresses. She also volunteered for the sewing group at church making bandages for those overseas. She stitched beautiful needlework projects, was an avid reader and enjoyed her crossword and jigsaw puzzles. Betty enjoyed traveling before her retirement and had visited Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Poland, Estonia, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania and Russia. Betty was very proud of her family’s longevity. She was in five generation photographs for three consecutive generations.
