Remembering Betty Werner

Elizabeth (Betty) Werner -- July 2,1933 – April 14, 2021 

GTEV Edelweiss would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Elizabeth (Betty) Werner.  She passed away on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at the age of 88, just 11 months after the passing of her husband of 68 years.  Betty was born in Yugoslavia in 1933.  

She was the loving wife of Andreas "Andy" Werner Sr., former Edelweiss 1. Vorstand.  She was the mother of two children Andy (Pam) Werner and Michael (Gretchen) Werner.  She was Oma to one granddaughter.  She will be dearly missed.  May her family have peace and comfort in their heart during this difficult time. 

Betty joined Edelweiss in May 1954 and was awarded Ehrenmitglied for her contributions to our Verein.  She served as a Schuhplattler, Jugendleiterin, and Sachenverwalterin.  In her spare time, she loved to bake.  She and Andy moved up to Sand Lake in northern Michigan after their retirement in the 1980s. 

Enjoy this lovely old photo of Betty and Andy from their active dancing days.

Ruhe in Frieden
