Cynthia A. “Cindy” Betten, 65

Cynthia A. “Cindy” Betten, 65, Laketon, passed away at her home on April 28, 2020. One of Homer and Mary Jane (Jacoby) Kerr‘s six children, Cindy was born on Nov. 12, 1954, in Wabash.

In 1972 Cindy graduated from Manchester High School, and on June 17, 1984, she married Clarence Betten. The two were wed for nearly thirty-six years. Cindy worked for Peabody Senior Living for twenty years in the laundry department before retiring in 2018.

Cindy loved spending time outdoors, especially tending to her flowers and garden. She also enjoyed going to antique shops and looking at various items. Most of all, though, Cindy loved her family with all her heart and always put them before herself. She was the string that held the family together and could oftentimes be heard bragging about her grandchildren and the time she spent with them.

The loving memory of Cindy Betten will be forever cherished by her husband, Clarence Betten of Laketon; sons, Michael (Kelly) Kerr of North Manchester and Matthew (Amanda) Kerr of Urbana; twin daughters, Laura and Lynda Betten, both of North Manchester; brothers, Larry (Diana) Kerr of Katy, Texas, John Kerr of New Port Richey, Fla., and Tom (Jo) Kerr of North Manchester; sister, Angie (Norman) Smith of Laketon; and six grandchildren. Cindy was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Patricia Wiley.

Family and friends may call Friday, May 1, 2020, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Laketon Cemetery, Wabash County Road 200 West and 950 North, Laketon, Indiana. A graveside service will begin at the conclusion of calling. Pastor J.P. Freeman will officiate.

For those who wish to honor the memory of Cynthia A. “Cindy” Betten, memorial contributions may be made to Wabash Cancer Society, P.O. Box 144, North Manchester, Indiana.
