Betty Lou Feig
Betty (Thompson) Feig, 74, died Monday, April 20, in Elk City, Oklahoma, in a motor home fire which also claimed the life of their beloved dog Taffy.
Betty was born Nov. 20, 1940, to the late Nellie and Fred Thompson, of Monterey. She was a twin to James and the youngest of six children.
Betty and Ken were married March 13, 1960, and enjoyed 55 years as each other’s best friend and soul mate. They enjoyed playing games and doing jigsaw puzzles, traveling and spending time with their family. Betty loved to bake and enjoyed sharing her food with loved ones, church family and friends.
They raised two children: Dorothy [Tom] Chambers and Tim [Fabiola] Feig. Betty loved their six beautiful grandchildren: Challis [Adam] Woods, Jared [Beth] Chambers, Nikita Feig, Kelsey Chambers, Cheyenne Feig and Diego Feig. They also assisted in raising Betty's nieces Rebecca Budzinski and Colleen Danti.
She is survived by siblings: Kathryn [Bob] Macklin, Robert [Violet] Thompson, James [Jeanne] Thompson and preceded in death by her parents, in-laws, and her brother Clarence Thompson.
She is survived by brother-in-law Robert [Pam] Feig and James [Judy] Feig. She kept in close contact with her extended family and friends by phone and letters — seeing and talking to them was a priority. She will be missed by many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. She made friends wherever she went. “She never met a stranger.”
Betty was a Seventh-day Adventist who loved the Lord and looked forward to his second coming. She was very active in her church and taught Sabbath school for young children for many years.
She made the Sabbath a special day of worship and rest for her family. She loved all babies and children and was very proud of her four great-grandchildren: Oliver, Lacey, Quinn and Jolee.
A memorial to celebrate her life and honor the love and kindness she showed to so many will be held at Knox Seventh-day Adventist Church in Monterey, U.S. 35 and 800 S., on May 10 at noon CDT. A lunch will follow.
