Betty had certain goals. Her top priority was to live to be 100 years, that her maternal grandmother was only a few months short of. With her heritage of Norwegian, German, and Irish, she had great determination. Her next goal was to go to her all-school class reunion in Spirit Lake, Iowa every year. She enjoyed traveling. She was a regular at the Mandeville Methodist Church. She enjoyed the K.C. Barbecue Society, attending monthly lunches and contest Friday night parties on the barbecue trail throughout the Midwest. Everyone knew her as “Mom” because she was always so personable and pleasant.
