Cynthia "Cindy" A (Kerr) Betten

November 12, 1954 — April 28, 2020

Laketon

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

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, Laketon, Indiana; sons, Michael (Kelly) Kerr, North Manchester and Matthew (Amanda) Kerr, Urbana, Indiana; twin daughters, Laura and Lynda Betten, both of North Manchester; brothers, Larry (Diana) Kerr, Katy, Texas, John Kerr, New Port Richey, Florida, and Tom (Jo) Kerr, North Manchester; sister, Angie (Norman) Smith, Laketon, Indiana; 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.
