Betty was born on September 24, 1922 near Walton, Indiana. She was the daughter of the late John and Leona (Baker) Phillips. On September 24, 1941 in Walton she married Corwin Wilson who preceded her in death on May 7, 2002.
Betty enjoyed sewing, gardening, canning, and playing cards. Family was Betty’s passion and delight. It was rare that she missed an event in which one of her children or grandchildren was participating. She loved hosting family and friends, especially when she could cook up some delights for them to enjoy. She enjoyed so many good times with the morning group at McDonalds. You could always find her at the Walton Library on Friday morning playing cards with the gals. She was a member of the Gay-Niters Extension Homemakers Club and Onward Grange. Betty won several local and state awards for her sewing. She was active for many years in the 4-H Club Programs of Cass County where she served on many committees and as leader of the Tipton Lucky 4-Hers. She was a member of the Onward Christian Church where the Women’s Fellowship meant so much to her.
