We know she will be missed by so many more friends and relatives, far too many to be listed here. Of course, all her brothers and sisters in Christ at the Ustick Road Church of the Nazarene must be mentioned, where she was baptized at the age of 89 years old.
Betty was born in Cheraw, Colorado, on January 29, 1922. She attended school through eighth grade. She chose marriage and starting a family at an early age rather than attending high school. She worked side by side with her first husband Onis farming in Arkansas and also in Southern Idaho in the Buehl/Castleford area when they moved there in 1944. In 1947 they moved to North Central Idaho to Weippe where they started a small saw mill and worked in the timber industry for many years until Onis retired. At that time. Betty started working as a custodian at Timberline High School near Weippe. In 1979, they moved to Parma in South West Idaho where Betty worked as a custodian at Notus High School until she retired. Betty loved to work and even though she was retired, she continued working in her vegetable and flower gardens. Irises were one of her favorite flowers to grow.
Onis passed in 1985 and Betty married Clyde in 1988 and moved back to North Central Idaho to Juliaetta near Lewiston. In 1994 they moved to South West Idaho to Middleton and then to Caldwell in 2000.
Besides working in her flower and vegetable gardens, Betty enjoyed sewing, crocheting and reading.
Funeral services will be held at Dakan Funeral Chapel, 504 S. Kimball Ave, Caldwell on Tuesday, May 29th at 2:00 PM with Pastor Brian Dyer officiating. Interment will follow at the Parma Cemetery in Parma, Idaho.
