Betty Scheiner

Betty Scheiner, 84, of Des Moines, IA passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, September 29, 2019 surrounded by her family.

Betty Lou was born August 22, 1934 in North Carolina, one of 9 children born to Ijar and Lillie (Rogers) Carter. Much of Betty’s life was spent in North Carolina.  It was there that she worked as a waitress for many years and where she would meet her loving husband, William Scheiner. Betty and William were united in marriage on December 15, 1984. In 1985, Betty moved her family to Des Moines, IA, where they would make their home.

Betty was known for being feisty and funny; she had a particular knack for thinking of some crazy jokes. Among many things, she loved bowling, crocheting, dancing, and all types of music. She was an artist, with a skill in drawing; she enjoyed working on her flowers in the yard; and she LOVED her red car. Above all, family was what was most important to Betty and she treasured any time that she got to spend with her grandchildren.

Left to cherish Betty’s memory is her husband of 35 years, William Scheiner; daughter Barbara Riley; siblings Bo and Susie; 3 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

In death Betty rejoins her parents, Ijar and Lillie; son, Dennis Gibson; and siblings, Elvin, Sally, James, Francis, Emma, and Hallie.
