ANDERSON
Betty Lou Anderson, age 95, of Celina, passed away on Monday, October 2, 2023 at her residence, surrounded by family.

 

Born in Coldwater on April 26, 1928, Betty Lou was the only child of the late Louis Joseph Kallmeyer and Bessie Elnora (Deitsch) Kallmeyer.  Betty's father died of a stroke before she was 15 months old.  She was 

raised by her mother and step-father, Ed Fox, Sr., and during her school years was known as Betty Fox.  

 

Betty was especially close to her maternal grandparents, Henry and Anna Deitsch, who helped care for 

her in the years before her mother remarried.  She spent many happy days with them on their farm on Oregon Road in Liberty Township.    

 

Betty attended elementary and high school in Coldwater, where she was a four-year cheerleader, graduating with the class of 1945.  She met Warren Anderson in Coldwater when she was playing softball, when Warren 

and his friends pulled up on their Indian Motorcycles.  Betty and Warren were married in 1947, and over the next 18 years, became the parents of 11 children - 5 girls and 6 boys.  Warren died February 16, 2007.

 

While they raised their children, Warren and Betty also built one of the first drive-in restaurants in the area, called "the Willow", and operated it for over 20 years.  Warren worked full-time at Mersman's, and then 

New Idea and other jobs, while Betty took over most of the day-to-day management of the restaurant.  The 

restaurant closed in 1972, and Betty worked for a time as an aide at Briarwood Nursing Home in Coldwater.  

 

In 1984, Warren and Betty's son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Denise, opened a fast-food restaurant on Main Street in Celina.  In honor of the original restaurant, they named their business "the Willow".  Betty 

immediately reentered the restaurant business, making soups and pies for the new Willow, and for many years she served late night and early morning customers.  Betty became great friends with many of her 

customers who would stop for middle-of-the-night sandwiches and coffee when they had insomnia, or were on their way home from work.  She became well-known for her pies.  

 

She retired from the restaurant business for the final time in 2014, when she was 86 years old.  Her children were worried that she would be bored at home, but Betty enjoyed her second retirement and told her children, "I should have retired at 80."

 

Betty was very religious, going to Mass every day when she was still able to drive.  Her faith brought her comfort after the deaths of her husband and 3 of her sons.  She kept a Bible and several prayer books on the table beside her favorite chair.  She set aside time every day for prayer.

 

She was also passionate about her politics.  A very conservative Republican, her house became well known by people who traveled often on State Route 127 south of Celina for the variety of political signs that adorned her front yard.

 

Betty is survived by 8 children: Pamela Anderson of Lima, Deborah (Tom May) Anderson of Celina, Lorraine (Tom Cole) Anderson and Stephanie (Alan) Birt of Montezuma, Scott (Denise) Anderson, Joel (Carol Holdheide) Anderson, and Lisa Stahl Ricks of Celina, and Kevin (Lori) Anderson of Cincinnati; 

a daughter-in-law, Diana Anderson of Lima; 18 grandchildren, numerous great grandchildren, and 5 half-siblings: Joan Meyers, Virginia Baucher, and Bill Fox of Coldwater, Mary Ann Fickert of Celina, and Ed Fox of Van Wert.     

 

3 sons are deceased: Monte, Brent, and Chris Anderson, son-in-law: Ron Ricks, a half-brother, Paul Fox, and 5 step-siblings: John and Margaret Fox, Rosemary (Sister Anita) Fox, Dorothy Ellis, and Rita Nartker. 

 

Betty was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Celina, and the Altar Rosary Sodality.

 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 a.m., Friday, October 6, at Immaculate Conception Catholic 

Church, Celina, with Father John Tonkin presiding.  Burial will be in Swamp College Cemetery, Celina.

 

Friends may call from 2:00 - 8:00 p.m., Thursday, October 5, and 9:30 - 10:15 a.m. on Friday, 

at W.H. Dick & Sons-Hellwarth Funeral Home in Celina.

 

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Immaculate Conception Grade School, 

Right to Life, or to the charity of one's choice.
