Angels belong in Heaven. Betty passed away peacefully and is now dancing with Lee. Betty was born in Marquette, the third of seven children to Carl and Della (Dunham) Anderson. Betty graduated from Trout Creek High School and attended Business College in Green Bay and worked in Chicago. Betty met Lee while in grade school and they often rode the Soo Line back to Sidnaw.

Betty and Lee settled in Sidnaw and raised the twins, Debbie and David. She and Lee were married days short of 48 years. Betty worked numerous jobs while raising the twins, a clerk at Borrows Grocery Store, cooking for Camp Nesbit and Alberta, eventually retiring from a career as the Sidnaw postmaster. She was a long time member of the Covington Women’s Auxiliary VFW. Betty had moved to Rapid River a few years after Lee’s passing with her daughter as her health began to deteriorate. She moved one year ago to an assisted living facility, Sunny View where she was loved and well cared for.
