Betty Ripple

July 31, 1927 — December 20, 2013

Betty Jane Ripple, age 86 of Oxford passed away peacefully Friday evening, December 20, 2013 at St. Clare Meadows in Baraboo. Betty was born in Oxford on July 31, 1927 to Clarence and Helen (Fredericks) Davies. She grew up in Randolph and graduated from Randolph High School in 1944. Betty furthered her education, graduating from the Milwaukee Business College. Betty met Kenn while singing in the Milwaukee Berean church choir and married Kenn three years later on August 27, 1949. Betty and Kenn raised their five children in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Colorado before settling in Oxford on her grandmother's farm, Thanksgiving of 1973.

Betty was a very artistic and creative woman who did china painting and stained glass. She enjoyed gardening, bird watching, cooking, baking, canning, playing cards and nearly always catching bigger fish than Kenn. She was a very dedicated member of the First Presbyterian Church of Oxford. Betty's greatest accomplishment was her family and she was very proud of all of them. She will not be soon forgotten by her family and all of the people who knew her.
