The 1970's saw Betty with her husband and children on several canoe trips in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. She travelled often on vacations to the Rocky Mountains, having visited national parks throughout the western U.S. and Canada. In later years Betty and Richard made frequent and regular visits to the Pacific Northwest where two of her four children live and work Through her adult life Betty worked an assortment of full and part time jobs in the Winona community, but for the majority of her years took pleasure in keeping and caring for her beautiful home, growing her flower garden and feeding the birds. Betty had a unique and colorful sense of humor. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her family meant everything to her. She was preceded in death by her parents, five brothers, and six sisters.
