Betty Jean Howard

 

Betty Jean Howard, 88, of Louisville, Kentucky, passed away on Sunday, August 6, 2023.  She was born on June 26, 1935, to the late Kenneth and Gertrude (Langnehs) Mock, in Louisville, Kentucky.

Betty was always very kind and loving, and she was known by many as “Mom”.  She was always a hard worker and never met a stranger while working.  Betty loved playing Bingo and Yahtzee.  She loved thrift shopping and yard sales.  Betty was a fun spirit and enjoyed dancing and having fun with her grandchildren.  Most of all, Betty was an excellent Mom and loved her family with all her heart.  She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

She was preceded in death by her step-father, Orville Zoeller, Sr.; her brother, Mike Langnehs; her daughter, Debbie Howard; her son, Steve Howard; her grandson, Jonathan Howard; and her great-grandson, Garren Howard.

Left to cherish the memories of Betty’s life is her children, Kenny Howard, Mark Howard, and Melissa Barker; her sister, Barbie Howell; her brother, Orville Zoeller (Melba); her 16 grandchildren; 37 great grandchildren; 1 great-great grandchild and a host of friends and extended family members.
