Betty Wing

December 23, 1931 — May 28, 2023

Danville, Indiana

Betty Wing, 91 of Danville, Indiana, peacefully passed away on May 28, 2023.

She was born December 23, 1931 in Plymouth, Indiana to Roy Devee McMillen and Edna Marie Bordner. Betty spent her childhood in Lebanon, Indiana. Her parents moved there when she was three months old and that’s where she attend Central Grade School, Lebanon Junior High School and Lebanon Senior High School. She was active in Girl Scouts and was a member of the Junior and Senior Honor Society. She graduated in 1949 and a few months later, on June 4th she married Lawrence Wing.

Marriage took Betty from an active city life to an even busier schedule as a farmer’s wife. The country life of Lizton, Indiana and the surrounding counties agreed with Betty and she was involved in her church and the many activities of her five children.

She enjoyed being creative and expressed her artistic side through oil painting, crocheting, and cutting out wooden Christmas ornaments with a bandsaw (by herself) and then painting them to give away as gifts.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband Lawrence, her son Glenn, daughter-in-law Mada, son-in-law Tyrone, granddaughter Vanessa and her only sibling, her sister Beverly Jones.
