Beloved wife of the late H. Don Krouse, dear mother of Vicky (Dave) Young and Donna (Scott) Stauffer, sweet Mimi to 8 grandchildren (Victoria Young, Michael Young, Danielle Clark, Ashley Gross, Zachary Young, Justin Schwartzman, Kasandra Schraer and Aubreigh Cox) and 24 great grandchildren. Betty was born January 31st, 1926. She was preceded in death by her parents Lowell Dorris Whitlock and Vera (Huddleston) Whitlock and her brothers Dr. Lowell Dorris Whitlock, Jr. and Randy Whitlock.
Betty’s journey was long, beautiful and abundant. She dedicated herself to the family she built alongside the love of her life. She found her purpose in loving others and serving God. She played a vital role in her church community. She was a teacher, seamstress, pianist, golfer, tennis player and traveler. Betty also loved to cook and to host gatherings for family and friends. She was renowned for her shopping skills. Above all else, she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
We are rejoicing that, after living an abundant life, she has begun her new life in Christ.
