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.

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.

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.
