After her retirement, Betty was the owner and operator of Back Porch Crafts, and spent many years creating lovely sculptures and various crafts and artwork.
Elizabeth was the beloved wife of Edward Grotyohann; loving mother of Bob Grotyohann and his wife Wendy, and Roger Grotyohann and his wife Karolyn; and was the adoring grandmother of Lauren, Natalie, Justin and Connor.
