On a sunny June day, Betty Eloise was born June 11, 1921 to her parents, Lawrence and Dorothy Bliesner in their farm home in Blissfield, MI area. She graduated from the Blissfield Schools.

Betty’s interests were gardening, stamp collecting and writing to her many pen pals. Betty’s favorite Bible verse was John 3:16- For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life.
