Betty was born on May 11, 1941 in St. Cloud to Hugo and Mary (Becker) Ahmann. She grew up in St. Cloud and graduated from Cathedral High School. She worked for many years at Frenchy’s Supper Club in St. Cloud. After leaving there she worked at Stearns Manufacturing in Sauk Rapids then Cold Spring Granite. Betty retired in her 50’s and cared for her mother when the family moved to Richmond, MN. She also did care giving for her two brothers in their last years. Betty lived a simple and quiet life. She was very committed and took great pride in keeping the family farm land farmed. She enjoyed maintaining her yard for many years until her health issues made this impossible. She then enjoyed putting puzzles together and feeding the birds, squirrels and deer daily so she could sit and view them outside her window.
Betty is survived by her sisters, Mary (Pete) Thome, Donna (Bob) Feldhege, and Ann (Harold) Remold; brother in-law, Wilfred Dietman; many nieces; nephews and special friend, Connie Nelson.
Preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Peter, Paul, John (Elaine), Elmer (Marlys) Ahmann; sister, Leona Dietman; many nephews and a niece.
