September 14, 1931 - January 17, 2021
PRINCETON - Betty Frances Hagenrater, 89, of Princeton, formerly of St. George, UT and Westminster, MD, passed away Sunday, January 17, 2021 at Princeton Community Hospital. Betty was a faithful church member of First Baptist Church and derived great joy in serving in the church choir in her younger years. She loved music, whether it be playing the piano (only using the black keys and yet making beautiful songs), listening to Patsy Cline, or singing to her grandchildren (Scarlet Ribbons being her signature lullaby). She worked for the Social Security Administration for most of her life, but found true joy in creating patchwork quilts for her family, baking her signature cheesecake for those she loved, and always, always, beating her family members at Trivial Pursuit and Jeopardy. Betty was an independent, strong woman who instilled a ferocity of spirit in those she raised and loved. She was unflinching in delivering her opinions, of which she had many, and her directness and truthful observations, often given in her signature “Betty-isms,” will not be forgotten. She follows her beloved husband, Wilbur, to heaven, where she will be greeted by her mother and father, Daisy and Herbert Tibbs; her sister, Phyllis Choate; and her eldest brother, Harvey Tibbs. She is remembered and celebrated by her daughters, Carol and Amy; her grandchildren, Gregan, Rachael, Mitchell, Piper, and Griffin; her great-grandchildren, Isaac, Kaylee, Ashley, Isaiah, and Abigail; her youngest brother, Robert Tibbs; and her dearest friend, Dickie Whitten. In lieu of a formal service and due to current safety restrictions, friends and family are invited to share their favorite memories as we celebrate her life on Bailey-Kirk’s website.
