McMASTER, Betty May
(Age 80)

Betty passed away January 24, 2011 in Moses Lake. She was born in Hendrix, OK on August 19, 1930 to Lee Roy and Maybell Kelley and was the fourth of six children. She took delight in reaching the age of 80 when no one else in her family had done so. When she was 16, Betty met Victor McMaster who was a sailor in the U.S. Navy. They were married on March 30, 1947. At the age of 20 Betty was the mother of three children; Venda, Vicki and Mike. The family lived in El Monte, CA until 1958 and then moved to Canada to study the Bible at Prairie Bible Institute. Her husband Victor passed away in 2002. In 2006 Betty moved to Ephrata to live in the Basin Retirement Home to be near her daughter Vicki. She loved the last years of her life in Ephrata, and she enjoyed living in a small town. Betty is preceded in death by both parents, one sister and four brothers. She is survived by her daughters Venda Adams of Auburn, WA, and Vicki (Dave) Johnson of Ephrata, son Michael (Janice) McMaster of Mission Viejo, CA, along with 10 grandchildren Ruth and Matt Hochstedler, John Adams, Paul and Amanda Adams, David Adams, Kim and Chad Lavine, Bryan and Katie Johnson, Rachel Johnson, Ryan, Patrick and Jennifer McMaster and seven great-grandchildren.
