During those years, she led numerous travel groups to locations around the globe. She and Donald enjoyed numerous private travel experiences as well. She was also active in the Presbyterian Church, Zonta International, and the League of Women Voters.
Betty will be remembered for her caring and friendly personality by many friends in both her private and professional lives. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She enjoyed all aspects of life with her family which included travel, recreation, adventures, and celebrations. Betty hosted many beautiful dinners for her family together with Donald. She was an avid reader and had a sharp memory for detail, easily recalling names and stories from her life. She was a wonderful conversationalist and the consummate hostess.

The family would like to thank the doctors and staff at the Aurora Sheboygan Medical Center for the excellent care given to Betty.
