Betty was a lifelong member of Medora United Methodist Church where she served as a Sunday school bus driver, Sunday school teacher and board member. Betty and her beloved husband Robert were the caretakers of Camp Indi-Co-So in Springville, Indiana for over 18 years.

She loved farming, IU basketball, driving a tractor and mowing grass. Her mower of choice was a zero turn. She was famous for her homemade ice cream and cooking. She didn’t let age slow her down, buying her first motorcycle at the age of 70.

Betty loved people and never met a stranger. She was an amazing cook and loved to cook for people with some of her favorites being ham, mashed potatoes made with three sticks of butter, baked beans and oyster soup.

Betty was well known for being a school bus driver for many years. She loved her students and they loved her. She started her day early, parking the bus and spending time in prayer for her day and for her students. She was Godly lady with great faith. Above all that she loved in this life, nothing compared to her love for Jesus Christ. She was never shy about testifying and wanted everyone to know her God and have a relationship with him.

Eight Grandchildren, Rob Hamilton (Dean), Seth Hamilton (Bethany), Hillary Emery (Travis), Olivia Hamilton, Ethan Hamilton, Noah Hamilton (Allie), Kaleb McKinney (Lindsey) and Kegan McKinney (Erin).
