Betty J. Blevins, 81, North Manchester, went home to be with Jesus on January 11, 2019 at Miller’s Merry Manor, Peru, Indiana. One of four children, Betty was born on September 13, 1937 to Edward and Ethel (Wood) Rickett in Logan, West Virginia.
For the last 67 years, Betty has been married to her best friend Elmer Blevins. The two were married on March 19, 1951. During their time of marriage, Betty worked and retired from Controls after 30 years of service. When she got free time from raising the family and working, Betty enjoyed to relax by painting, going to flea markets and being a member of the Red Hat Society. Most of all, she loved being with her family and especially her grandchildren. Betty will be remembered for many things, but the most important to her and her family is that she was a great mother and a devoted Christian. A member of Manchester Bible Church in North Manchester, Betty loved going to church every Sunday, until her health started to decline.
