Obituary for Brenda Kay Bettge (Newberry)

Brenda Kay (Newberry) Bettge

Brenda Kay (Newberry) Bettge, 61, of Collinsville, Oklahoma; formerly of Maryville, Missouri; and Essex, Tabor, Randolph, and Shenandoah, Iowa; passed away on Friday, November 23, 2018 at her home following a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer.

Brenda was born on October 16, 1957 in Maryville, Missouri to Kenneth D. and Ethelyne J. (Starmer) Newberry. The family moved to southwest Iowa where she attended the Fremont Mills Community Schools. Brenda was married to David Baker and later Terry Walker. She met William “Bill” Bettge, her soul mate and the love of her life, after moving to Oklahoma. They were married October 4, 2004 and were blessed to have shared 15 wonderful years together.

Brenda was a beautiful, kind, and caring person. Being a wife to her husband, Bill, and mother to her son, Justin Walker were her greatest joys. She worked in medical billing for Drs. Cloepfil and Samuelson at Mid-Plains Eyecare Center in Shenandoah prior to moving to Oklahoma. In Oklahoma, she again worked in medical billing as long as her health allowed. She loved spending time with friends and family, and she enjoyed horses, fishing, boating, traveling, making crafts and occasionally woodworking.

Brenda was preceded in death by her father, Kenneth D. Newberry, mother, Ethelyne J. Umbenhower, step-father, John W. Umbenhower, and brother, Terry Newberry.

She is survived by her husband, Bill, of Collinsville, Oklahoma; son Justin (JJ) Walker and his wife, Heather Lee, granddaughters, Loa Kay and Ebba Walker of South Korea; two stepsons, Fred Bettge, his wife Katie, granddaughter, Archer Anne; Daniel Bettge, his wife Aleshia, two grandsons, Julius Don and Bentley Bruce Bettge; two brothers, Marvin Newberry and his wife, Lynn and Rick Newberry and his wife, Sharum. Brenda was blessed with three nieces, one nephew, seven step-nieces, and two step-nephews.
