Betty went to school in Moscow, Minnesota where she rode her horse, a gray Tennessee Walker, to school “every day uphill both ways.” She attended Austin High School. After graduation, she took her nurses training at Neave Hospital in Albert Lea where she met the love of her life, Gordon. Gordon and Betty were married on December 6, 1953. They moved to the Twin Cities area where Betty worked in several nursing home facilities; one being Innsbruck in New Brighton. She then had the honor of being a stay-at-home mom and grandma. Gordon and Betty enjoyed their retirement in Florida for 10 years. Then they moved out to Chisago City in 1996 to be back in the country where Betty liked it best.
