Betty was born at home on the farm near Minatare, NE to Henry and Amelia (Hauff) Miller on November 30, 1939. She graduated from Mitchell High School in 1958.
Betty married the love of her life, Alvin Gerald Foos, on November 2, 1958.
Betty was the center of her family, the glue, the guiding light. She loved to garden and tend to her many flower beds. She was always a child of God and walked in the light of the Lord. Her family was the most important piece to her life. She would always make them their favorite meals and never forgot one birthday, anniversary, or special occasion, so personal, sharing family news and testaments of her faith. She enjoyed puzzling on her down time and listening to her favorite pastor while singing her favorite hymns. Betty was the keeper of the family recipes and generous in sharing with family! Her German dishes were among the family favorites. She was a hard worker in everything she did, being a homemaker, Sunday school teacher, working at the sugar factory and a local landscaping business.
Betty is deeply loved and missed by her husband of nearly 65 years, Alvin; four sons, Richard of Riverton, WY, Randal of Scottsbluff, NE, Robert (Colleen) of Riverton, WY, and Ronald (Dino) of Eaton, CO; grandchildren, Heather, Brandin, Roxanne, Tyson, Ryan, Randy, Rashelle, and Ryley; thirteen great-grandchildren; brothers, Jack (Judy) Miller of Berthoud, CO and Steve (Jan) Steffensen of Columbus, OH; sisters, Sandy Daniels of Tulsa, OK, Sally (Bob) Smith of Loveland, CO, Patty (Chuck) Winkler of Scottsbluff, NE, Carolyn (Barry) Elliott of Grand Junction, CO, and “Tiny” Eleanor (Mike) Baker of Columbia, MO; sisters-in-law, Rhonda Miller of Boise, ID and Sharon Foos of Scottsbluff, NE; and numerous nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.
