“Wonderful Lady”. That is how one of her newest friends and fellow residents of Our House in Reedsburg referred to Betty. It sums up who Betty was. She took a caring attitude toward everyone who crossed her path. She wanted to know how she could help and she would always add those in need to her prayer list, give them food or candy or some advice she thought important. She loved to cook and share food with others. She taught her children to cook and share as well. Above all, she loved God and zealously pursued ways to serve God. She taught her children the things she felt they need the most to get through this world and the next. Never did a day go by that she did not work hard for God and the people she loved. We will miss her, our great kind mother, grandmother, friend and wife.

Betty is survived by her husband, John; sons, John of Oakland, CA, Nick of Lyndon Station, Tim of Wisconsin Dells, Bob of Lyndon Station and David of Modesto, CA; daughters, Mary Sein of Peach Tree City, GA, Janet Ells of Phoenix, AZ and Teresa Wohlrab of Mauston, WI; sisters, Pauline Cates of Redding, CA, Margaret Dair and Geraldine Schmidt both of Grand Junction, CO as well as her 14 grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; daughter, Ann Stine; sisters, Bernice Olson and Patricia Mills and brothers, Gerald and Norman Hadley.
