Elizabeth York Osborn, age 96, passed away on Monday, July 25, 2016 in Salt Lake City, UT.

Family and friends are invited to gather for a graveside service on Sunday, October 9 at 2:00pm at the Riverside Cemetery with Rev. Alexander Haines officiating. A celebration of Elizabeth's life will follow at Top Floor Events in Huron.

Elizabeth (Betty) was born February 2, 1920 in Mt. Vernon, NY to Andrew Joseph and Lucy York Vosler and grew up in Briarcliff Manor, NY. She attended Barnard College in New York City, graduating with a B.A. in English Literature.

Betty married Robert K. Osborn in 1944 and the couple moved to Huron, when Robert returned home to run the Osborn Clothing Company. Together they raised nine children. Betty's outgoing nature fit well into her and Robert's involvement in Huron and South Dakota's business, social and political life.

Left to honor Betty and remember her vivaciousness and kindness are her nine children: Sheldon Osborn, Robert Osborn, Jr., Janet Osborn, Mary (Wayne Wetherell) Osborn, and John (Sue Fleck) Osborn, Dr. Carol Osborn, Victoria (Erik Kingston) Osborn; Patricia (Mark Reilly) Osborn, Thomas Osborn; fifteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Memories and condolences can be shared at In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Huron Public Library in memory of Elizabeth.
