Betty was a 20 year member of the American Legion Auxiliary Post 347 in Lomira and later of Post 521 in Fox Lake.  She and Lenny enjoyed visits to Legion events around the state.  Together they often traveled to the southern states for the winter months and appreciated the companionship of friends in Louisiana.  In their latter years fishing Mill Creek behind their home and visiting HoChunk Casino were favorite activities.

Betty adored sharing time with her children, grandson and grand dogs.  Watching Badger and Packer games along with admiring her flowers in bloom were some of her favorite pastimes.  She was a member of the Annunciation Catholic Church in Fox Lake.
