Betty Jean Mincer

Sioux Falls - Betty Jean Mincer of Sioux Falls went to be with her beloved husband Bob on Friday, July 6, 2018. Betty was born near Ruthven, IA on June 29th, 1934 to Cloyd and Ethyl (Beddow) Umbrell. She graduated from Spencer H.S. in 1952. After high school, Betty attended Northwest Institute of Medical Technology, graduating in 1953.

Betty married her high school sweetheart, Robert (Bob) Mincer in 1954. Betty followed Bob to Texas where he served in the Army. They started their family there with a son Tim, followed by Mike, Pat, and Pam, born on their return to Iowa. Bob and Betty were married for 62 years, spending considerable time in Huron, Spencer and Sioux Falls. Betty loved caring for her children and grandchildren, cooking, and making her house a home. Your family will miss the roast beef dinners, gravy like-no-other, apple pie, and sour milk pancakes. Our hope is that we can carry-on your focus on your family, caring for others, and religion. We love you Mom.

Betty is survived by three sons, Tim Mincer - Fort Lupton CO, Mike (Val) Mincer - Mandan ND, Pat (Sydney) Mincer - Lakewood CO, a daughter Pam (Lon) Tiggelaar - Sioux Falls SD, and a beloved sister, Sharon Arndt - Spencer IA.
