Betsy Ellen Armstrong, age 60, of Mendon, passed away 

at her home on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020.  

 

Betsy - Born Feb. 25, 1960, to Thomas & Barbara (Fox) 

Armstrong at Gibbons Hospital, Celina.  Her father is 

deceased and her mother survives.  Grandparents were 

George & Mildred (Ditto) Armstrong, Mendon and Peter 

& Hazel (Stewart) Fox, Rockford.

 

She was welcomed home by sisters: Nancy Armstrong (Jim) 

Painter and Vicky Armstrong and a brother, Mark (Robyn 

Hagar) Armstrong, who survive. 

 

Also surviving are nieces & nephews: Kris Painter (Kevin)

(Cassi) Painter and children, Amairi and Dylan, Jaime 

Armstrong and daughter, Ady, and Beth Armstrong (Matt)

Evelyn.

 

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, 

Mendon, 45862. 

 

God Bless You, and know that Betsy loved you too.
