Betty Irene Luis Aiken has gone home to her Savior after a courageous battle against cancer. She was born in 1928 to Everest and Margaret Williams in Alexandria, Minnesota. She married Albert Luis Sr. in 1945 and they raised seven children, Sandra (Don) Langdon, Larry (Norene), Allen (Janice), Robert (Nadine), Edward (Nancy), Albert Jr. (Talanda), James (Nancy) Luis. She remarried, after Albert's death, to George Aiken in 1990, when they added to their family Les (Sandy) Huddleston, Lisa Franks, JoAnna (David) Alves and Ray Aiken.
She is preceded in death by Albert Luis Sr., her parents, and her brothers, Dick, Don and Virgil Williams.
She is survived by her husband, George, her children, 4 step-children, 22 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren.
Betty loved gardening, crocheting, woodworking and spending time with her family and friends. We well miss her laughter and her smile.
