Betty passed into God's eternal kingdom following a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's and Congestive Heart Failure.
She was born in Chicago, Illinois, daughter of John Schattenberg and Ella Herbst Schattenberg.
Married James McWilliams 4/12/1942.
Betty was predeceased by her parents, John and Ella; brothers Anthony (Tony), John, and Earl; sister Emily; ex-husband James; and daughter Linda Boulett.
Betty is survived by her daughters Susan (Michael), Nancy, and Karen; son James; and son-in-law Jerry. She is also survived by 5 grandchildren, Maria Dawn, David, Kenneth, Juliet, and Randall; 9 great grandchildren and 7 great great grandchildren; brother Eugene and sister Ann.
Betty was never without a smile, a giggle, or a hug to pass on to everyone she met. She was unconditional love packed into a barely 5ft 2in frame.
A Celebration of Life will be planned at a later date.
