She enjoyed doing word searches, watching crime investigation shows, and cooking. She found particular joy in trying out new recipes.

Betty was blessed with two sons, Leo Forsman and Lynn Forsman, both of Lake Mills.

She was gifted with many loving friends whom she considered family.

A memorial visitation will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Claussen Funeral Home in Lake Mills.
