Betty was born March 15, 1926 in South Bend, Indiana, to Charles and Sarah Leister White. She married Glen Fetters on June 4, 1949 in South Bend. He predeceased her in death in March 2000.
Betty is survived by her son, David (Agnes) Fetters of Clayton, IN; two daughters: Janice Elsner of Sebring, FL and Patty (Joe) Solberg of Lexington; eight grandchildren: Chris Slagle, Tom (Keely) Solberg, Karen (EriK) McConnell, John (Donieka) Solberg, Mary (Josh) Palma, Jim (Haley) Solberg, Lesley Fetters, Mary Wright; and 11 great-grandchildren: Mackenzie, Olivia, Chloe, Henry Glen, Joe, Logan, Abel and Elliott. She was predeceased by a sister, Della Horning; and nine brothers: Verne, Art, Don, Roy, Noble, Max, Martin, Walt and Richard White.
In 1980, Betty retired after many years of nursing in labor and delivery.
If Betty didn’t know you well, she was always known to have said “Did you know I have nine brothers and one sister?” She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt to many. She enjoyed gardening and doing endless gardening jobs. She was proud to be able to do this until she was 80. She has lived a full and generous life. She will be sorely missed.
Memorial contributions can be made to St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Lexington, of which she was a member.
