Betty Louise Green, 87, Pleasant Hill, Iowa, took her last labored breath from complications of COPD at Parkridge Care Center on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, with her daughters close at hand. She was born August 10, 1932, to Elizabeth I. (Pierce) Garwick as her Father, Jesse S. Garwick, delivered her into this world at the train depot, where they lived, in New Liberty, IA.

Betty is survived by daughters, Debby (Jeff) Williams, Darla (Scott) Gruening, and Bonita (Rick) Trim, 9 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Daryl W. Green in 1995, and siblings, Kenneth (Darlene) Garwick, Dorothy (Jerry) Logsdon, and Agnes (Harold) Stewart.

Betty worked at Western International for 22 years as a press operator for their lawn and garden division. After retiring, she worked part time for Des Moines Public Schools in their afterschool care program, mainly at the Pleasant Hill Elementary School. For a few Summers, she was employed at Adventureland Theme Park in Altoona. She enjoyed working for Adventureland especially the Summers that her daughter, Debby, and her granddaughter, Ericka, joined her in working there. Her favorite ride was the Space Shot.

As a young mother, Betty relished the time with her children and their friends, from birthday parties where her cakes were the main attraction, to hosting after Halloween parties where bobbing for apples was a must. She made the kind of home that all the neighborhood children would like to be. In her more active years, she served the church in taking care of the cradle roll, video-taping church events, and serving communion at Berean Assembly of God where she was a member for many years. For the past few years, while she was still able to, she attended New Hope Assembly of God. In her spare time, Betty enjoyed family outings, playing Dominos or SkipBo with family, and reading.

The family will greet friends from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, Friday, June 26, 2020, at Grandview Park Chapel, 3211 Hubbell Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa 50317. Funeral services will be 10:30 am, Saturday, June 27, 2020 at New Hope Assembly of God Church, 4425 70th Street, Urbandale, Iowa 50322. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 7601 Fleur Drive, Des Moines, Iowa 50321.

Debby, Darla, and Bonita will continue their Mom’s legacy of sassiness, enthusiasm for life, and love for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Memorials may be directed to the family.
