She was born on July 2, 1930 in Visalia, California, the daughter of Edward and Cora (Rogers) Jackson. Betty was a member of the Mt. Zion Lutheran Church in Nokomis. She operated Betty’s Tavern for several years and also was a home healthcare provider.  She was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and loved watching games while enjoying a cold Stag beer.

She was preceded in death by her parents; 7 brothers and 3 sisters; and sons-in-law: Bill Dickey and Leroy Argo.

A graveside service for Betty will be held at 2:00pm on Monday, October 5, 2020 in the Mt. Zion Lutheran Cemetery outside of Nokomis with Rev. Rodney Blomquist officiating.
