Betty Jo Landis Nagy Obituary

Betty Jo Landis Nagy, 84, of Yuba City, passed away January 11, 2014, from heart complications. Betty was born on September 26, 1929 in Bristow, Oklahoma, and moved to California with her family at the age of two.

Betty attended area grammar schools and graduated from Marysville High School in 1948. When her children were young, she was active in the Kynock P.T.A. and was P.T.A. president. Betty was also a Blue Bird leader and a camp counselor at Camp Mi Wa He for several years. Later, Betty worked as a teller for Wells Fargo Bank, working in the branches at Beale AFB, Marysville, and Yuba City.

Hawaii was always a chosen destination for vacations, as well as camping with friends every summer. She was a big baseball fan and loved her teams, the Giants and the Gold Sox. For many years, Betty stayed active being the social chairperson at Del Prado Mobile Home Park and enjoyed planning all the parties and dinners. She thrived on family gatherings, and everyone knew her for her pies, and baby quilts. Betty was also active in her church and the Quilts for Kids program.

In 2009, Betty had a stroke, which gave her challenges, but never slowed her down. She always believed she would get "her walking shoes" and would walk again some day. She still worked towards that goal, and loved her time at Butchies Pool, where she could walk in the water and be free from her limitations. Now she is walking all over God's heaven.

Betty is survived by a daughter, Teresa Kauk; a son, Kenneth Kauk (Sue); five grandchildren and one great grandson; two sisters, Arelia Hanlin (Ed), and Ella Herrick; many nieces and nephews; and two step-daughters, Judy Armstrong and Jennifer Condroy (Charles). Betty was well loved by her family and friends, and her passing leaves a large hole in many hearts.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John Nagy; her parents, Ollie and Flemmie Landis; sister, Glendola Rebik; and grandson, Jason Kauk.

Donations can be made to the Live Oak Church of the Brethren, 1990 Archer Ave., Live Oak, CA 95993; or to Butchie's Pool, 144 Gibson Ave., Yuba City, CA 95991.

Viewing will be held Thursday, January 16, 2014 from 4-7 p.m. at Ullreys Memorial Chapel. Memorial service will be Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at Live Oak Church of the Brethren.
