Elizabeth "Betty" McQuerry was born on January 13, 1930, in Buckner, MO to Walter and Pearl (Ames) Armbruster. She graduated from Halls Memorial High School in Buckner in the Class of 1948. In 1950 she married her high school sweetheart, Ruben "R. C." McQuerry, which was the beginning of a marriage that lasted for 68 years. Elizabeth spent over 50 years as her husband's scheduler and bookkeeper for the McQuerry Piano Tuning business. Primarily, her life has been focused on her kids and grandkids. A true lover of little ones, she was once labeled a "professional grandmother" because of her loving and nurturing ways. She adopted all kids as her kids and delighted in shopping for all of them.

Dianne and family, I am very sorry for your loss. I remember many cheerleaders descending upon your home in Buckner and adding a lot of noise and giggling to a home already full with your wonderful family. Your mom never blinked and just put on a pot of goulash. Such a kind and loving lady. Prayers for you all.

I simply adored Aunt Betty. I can still hear her voice & how she called me Sugar. I know she´s in a better place. I can see her with Uncle Bud, Frank & LaVina just giggling & having a good time. She will be missed.

Betty was like my second mother growing up in Buckner. She welcomed me, and others into her home.... No matter how many kids might be there already. Betty was quick to laugh...and what a memorable laugh! My condolences to everyone who was privileged enough to know and love her. Peace and blessings.
