Betty Marie Raile Meads

Betty Marie Raile Meads died Friday at the age of 87.

Born May 1, 1925, in St. Francis, Kan., she was a daughter of the late George and Adella “May” Raile-Kramer.

In spirit Betty was a devoted member of Ben Davis Christian Church. Besides her family one of her greatest joys in life was to stay connected with family and friends. She was an avid writer who touched many lives with her cards and special notes.

Survivors include her children, Denise L. Hay (Bill Bailey) and Michael A. (Teri) Meads; grandchildren Danielle (Chris) Whitlock, Ryan Hay, Morgan Hay, Aaron Wilson, Brandon Wilson, and Alan Jones; great-grandchildren Dylan and Dane; and a brother, Ronald (Sharon) Kramer of Kearney, Neb.

Preceding her in death were her husband, Russell L. Meads, and a sister, Lois Rae Raile Link.

Services are 1 p.m. Wednesday at Conkle Avon Chapel. Interment will follow at Lincoln Memory Gardens.

Calling at the funeral home is from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and for two hours prior to the service on Wednesday.
