BETTY "EISY" EISENACHER, 98, of Fort Wayne, passed away on Monday, July 2, 2018, at North Woods Village. She was a lifelong resident of Fort Wayne, and a devoted member of Redeemer Lutheran Church. Betty was a graduate of South Side High School where she was voted best athlete. She attended so many South Side games that her bleacher seat was dedicated to her and she was given a Lifetime Sports Pass. She loved University of Michigan Football and could always be prompted to sing the fight song. She was a renowned pitcher for the Bob Inn softball team for six seasons leading them to several State Championships. She also played and coached basketball for General Electric where she worked for 41 years retiring in 1980. She attended 71 consecutive Indianapolis 500 races and was featured with Steve Hartman on the CBS Evening News when at 89 years old she was treated to a ride in an Indy car driven by Scott Hamilton. She was known for her strong Christian faith, athleticism, loyalty, frugality, and sense of humor. For those things and many more she will be dearly missed. Surviving are her nephews, Donald (Nancy) Eisenacher, and David Eisenacher; her grand-nieces, Holly (Sean) Leach, and Lori (John) Motz; grand-nephews, Brent (Shireen) Rice, and Matt (Erica) Eisenacher. She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Gertrude (Harries) Eisenacher; her brother, Alfred Eisenacher; niece, Carol Brouwer; her favorite cousin, Norma Carroll; and many Boston Terriers.
