She was a longtime member of First United Methodist Church in Salem where she was active in her Sunday School class and baked cookies for the staff.
Betty was predeceased by her husband Clifford Samuel Leweke, parents Emery and Nellie Weaver, brother and sister-in-law Norman and Dorthy Weaver and nephew David Weaver.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Nada and Frank Anderson; daughter Barbara Leweke; son and daughter-in-law Scott and Melanie Leweke; son and daughter-in-law Bob and Trisha Leweke; seven grandchildren, one step grandson and eight great grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Good Samaritan Hospice, Visiting Angels, and the special ladies who cared for her during her illness. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation can do so to First United Methodist in Salem or the SPCA or any charity of your choice.
A private family graveside service is planned for a later time. Arrangements are being handled by Lotz Funeral Home, Salem.
