She attended Mendon-Union School (Class of 1978), and
Wright State University and someplace in Florida to earn
2 Master's Degrees in education and counseling.
Betsy spent her first job working 17 years at Citizens Commercial
Bank in Celina. Then she taught at St. Henry High School. Later
she took the Guidance Counselor position for the high school, for
a total career of 22 years there at St. Henry. She loved the people
there and planned to retire in 4 years.
Her first love was for the church and youth of any kind, shape
or size ! She was the Youth Leader for 35 years at the Mendon
Methodist Church - still cooking for the youth meals and helping
make money for the youth to go to Lakeside yearly.
She held many offices at the church. (Church Treasurer, Lay
Leader, Teacher) Just whatever it took to help keep it running
smoothly. Always smiling and ready with a joke !
She loved to make chocolate chip cookies and they were everywhere
in the state. Gifts for all !
There will be no visitation, as Betsy was cremated ( at her request )
A private service will be held at this time for immediate family and
close friends only.
Sometime in the future we may have a celebration at the church, but
not now, because of the virus !
Please, no flowers. Instead, if you feel led to do so, donate something
to the General Fund at Mendon Methodist Church, P.O. Box 345,
God Bless You, and know that Betsy loved you too.
Condolences can be expressed to Betsy's family
Arrangements are under the direction of
W.H. DICK & SONS - HELLWARTH FUNERAL HOME OF MENDON.
