Obituary of Betty Jane Scheel

Later that year, Betty married Willard Scheel and together they had four children. Willard passed in February 2011. She enjoyed farming and staying at home with the children. As the children got older, Betty went to work at Ben Franklin store in Cambridge.
Betty was a member of East Koshkonong church and very active with the church ladies.
