Betty is survived by her children, Larry (Juanita) Watson of Republic, Dean Steven (Mary) Watson of Tiffin and Ken Watson of Tiffin, along with her grandchildren, Sarah, Seth, Anna and Marta and seven great-grandchildren.
Betty was a devoted mother and grandmother. She treasured her time with friends and family, especially at Christmas and summer picnics. She enjoyed attending and supporting her grandchildren's sporting and musical activities. A lot of her time was spent alongside her children tending to her farm. Most of all, she enjoyed spending hours in the kitchen with her grandchildren, passing onto them her family recipes.
Betty was born and raised on a farm and her and her husband, John were lifelong farmers. She enjoyed working outside all day in the fields, driving the tractors and taking care of her livestock. Her personal hobbies included card club, vegetable gardening, cooking and canning.
