Obituary for Betty Ann Vos

BETTY ANN VOS, 90, of Morrison, IL, died Saturday, March 5, 2022, peacefully at her home in Morrison.

Her funeral service will be at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, March 10, 2022 at Spring Valley Reformed Church in Fulton, IL, with Pastor Joseph Crum officiating. A visitation will be held from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, 2022 at the Morrison Chapel of the Bosma-Renkes Funeral Home. Interment will be at Grove Hill Cemetery, at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 10th. A memorial has been established to the Spring Valley Reformed Church.

Betty was born on November 19, 1931 in Fulton, IL, to Garrett and Gertrude (Housenga) Ottens. She was a 1949 graduate of Fulton High School. Betty was proud of the fact that she first attended the Union Grove Grade School in rural Whiteside County, where all six of her children later attended. On February 14, 1952 she married Albert J. Vos in Morrison; they had just celebrated their 70th year of marriage. She worked as a telephone operator for the Morrison Telephone Company and then together, Betty and Al developed the Pleasant View Acres Subdivision west of Morrison. They also owned and operated the ParkView Motel, the East End Mini Restaurant and Vos Apartments. She was a member of Spring Valley Reformed Church in rural Fulton for over 75 years, where she loved being involved in many groups. When Betty had free time, while raising her six children, she enjoyed refurbishing trunks, bowling on the Wednesday Morning Coffee League, doing puzzles, feeding wildlife and watching cardinals. She especially enjoyed staying in-touch and never missed an opportunity to send a card. Her family will fondly miss her beautiful handwriting. Above all, Betty valued her family, especially spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Survivors include her husband, Al; four daughters, Nancy (Doug) Bush of Fulton, IL, Brenda (Jim) Mitchell of The Villages, FL, Barbara (Mike) Schorpp of Rogers, AR, and Lisa (Joshua) Bush of Morrison; two sons, Larry Vos and Tim (Linda) Vos, both of Morrison; eleven grandchildren; two step-grandchildren; sixteen great grandchildren, plus one due in July; five step great-grandchildren; three brothers, Dick (Marlene) Ottens, Gary Ottens and Jim (Barb) Ottens, all of Morrison; two sisters-in-law, Joyce Ottens and Marilyn Vos, both of Morrison; one brother-in-law, Dewey Decker of Erie, IL; several nieces and nephews.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Alberta Decker; one brother, Leon Ottens.
