Betty Rose Dobbins
On July 15, after years off suffering from CHF, Betty Rose Dobbins went home to be with her Lord.
Jan. 20, 1932, Betty Rose Hink was born to John and Bertha Hink in Sprague, Wash. Betty married her childhood sweetheart Jerld Dobbins from Cheney on Jan. 29, 1950. Betty and Jerld had two children, Myles Joseph Dobbins of Harrington, Wash., and Audrey Rose Clum of Cheney.
Betty spent over 36 years working in the health care field. She started working at Sacred Heart Medical Center as lab technician. When Betty and Jerld moved to Fairfield, Wash., she took employment as a certified nursing assistant. Betty worked in four local nursing homes before she retired in 1986.
After her retirement she spent her time doing her favorite hobby: fishing. Betty was not only a good fisherman she was also a great sportsman. Betty also taught herself how to play the piano by ear and her favorite hymns were often heard coming from her home. Betty would spend many hours reading her Bible and her life reflected what she learned.
Her parents, four brothers and one sister preceded Betty in death. Her husband Jerld, one sister Donna Siegel of Colville, one son Myles Dobbins and his wife Jan, one daughter Audrey Clum and her husband John survive her. Betty has four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
The time Betty spent reading her Bible gave her the peace that only God can give as she left this world and stepped into her eternal home with her beloved Lord and Savior. A graveside service was held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday July 22, at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake, Wash. An online guest book is available at cheneyfuneral.com.
