WOLF, Betty L.

May 16, 2022

Betty Louise Wolf, (nee Goede), age 96, born in Berea, OH, passed away on May 12, 2022, surrounded by her four children and granddaughter. Betty was the loving wife (of 64 years) of the late Donald Wolf and loving sister to June Tischler; Dearest mother of Barbara Scullin (Len), David (Linda), Diane Herzing (Keith), and Lori VanArendonk (John); Beloved grandmother of Bethany, Brian, Patrick, Laura, Marc, Dean, Mark, Sean, Kevin, Chad, Alyse, Rachel, Benjamin, and Michael; Betty, fondly known as GG, is the great grandmother of 20: Isaac, Ava, Liam, Patrick, Alexandra, Nathan, Andrew, Madeline, Patrick, Clara, Lucy, Michaela, Hank, Zoe, Isaac, Eliana, Juliet, John, Ethan, and Levi. Betty was a member of the Brooklyn Reformed Church for 55 years. She was a Christian woman, and that was reflected in her everyday life. She met her husband Don for the first time at the German Central Farm, where they danced the night away, and had their wedding reception nine months later. She and her husband loved traveling around the world and especially their travels to Lake Chautauqua where the family of six camped in a tent for years before having a summer home there. They enjoyed sharing that home with several family members and friends. Being with family and friends was definitely a priority for Betty. Her four children and their spouses, her 13 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren were the loves of her life. She enjoyed playing cards with friends, being a member of a financial club, reading, embroidery, and celebrating Christmas in Montana with the girls. Most of all was Betty’s daily worship to God. Her favorite Bible verse “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”  (Philippians 4:13) carried her through the daily trials and tribulations of life. Betty Louise was the perfect role model for her family and will be forever remembered in all of the lives of the Wolf Family.

We would especially like to thank Diane Wolf Herzig for the undivided love, attention, and care that she provided for our mother over the past several years.

Also, we would like to thank the following who gave such great care to our mom. Betty loved each of them dearly:  Jan Harwood, Mary Jo Granger, and Jen Manthey.
