Mrs. Elizabeth “Betty” Johnson, age 81, of Grand Rapids, passed away late Saturday evening, October 2, 2010. She was a 1947 graduate of Howard City High School and then attended beauty school to become a hair stylist. Betty first met Richard at a dance on Christmas night, had another date on New Years Eve, and after a loving courtship, they were married on October 15, 1948. In addition to being a wife and mother, Betty was also the hair stylist for many years at the M.J. Clark Home. She was a virtuous woman who cared for her family and friends. Betty was a life member of Rockford Chapter #215 and Past Worthy Matron, and a member of Aldersgate United Methodist Church where she sang in the choir. She was very involved with her family as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. “Good things come in small packages” and that was Betty. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Richard “Dick”; children, Susan and Robert Cline of Kentwood, Cynthia Johnson of Kentwood; grandsons, Tyson (Teresa) Cline and their son, Cole of Columbus, OH, and Justin (Gesika) Cline of Columbus, OH; sister-in-law, Evelyn (Clare) O’Neill; and nephews. Betty’s family would like to thank Ronnie and Anna from Sanctuary of St. Mary’s for their love, care and compassion giving to Betty and her family. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider Alzheimer’s Association, 2944 Fuller Ave., NE, Ste. 101, Grand Rapids, MI 49505 or Crash’s Landing, 1545 Diamond Ave., NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49505.
