Betty was born on October 20, 1943 in Mankato, Minnesota to Beverly (Greenig) and David Hoehn. She was the fourth of five children to be born in her family. She attended Janesville schools through her junior year of high school. Her family then moved to St. Peter where she graduated from high school. Betty met and married Trougert Roemhildt after graduating from high school. They lived outside of Cleveland on Trougerts family farm. Together they raised three children. Betty was involved in Ladies Aid at St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church, visited the elderly, and enjoyed square dancing for many years. She was proud that she was able to teach a man to read through a community program. In her free time, Betty loved to read, keep up with the daily news, bake goodies, take care of the cats and dogs on the farm, ride bike, and watch movies and TV shows. Betty was thoughtful in trying to save little things for others. Whether it be Dear Abby articles for her sister, sports articles for her nephew, news columns for her niece, or comics for her children and grandchildren. She also knew how to be smart with her money. She could find a coupon for anything and she never forgot where they were either! Betty was intelligent, kind, and had a good sense of humor.

After many years, Betty and Trougert were divorced. Betty was then married for a few years to Richard Reisdorf and moved to Mankato. During this time she began work as a Home Health Care Aide for Nicollet County. She continued that work for 18 years. She also began attending Union Presbyterian Church and made many friends there.

Betty is survived by her children, Debbie (Gary) Prins, Paul (Shelly) Roemhildt, and Melody (Jim) Hime; grandchildren, Sam (Heather) Johnson, Grace (Wesley) Lin, Ethan (Kellie) Prins, Rose Prins, Hunter Prins, Kyle Roemhildt, Abby (Tayt) Sexe, Danielle (Brandon) Van Houdt, Brianna Reeder, and Mackenzie Reeder; great-grandchildren, Elyse Johnson, Baby Johnson (due in August), Noah Lick, and Sawyer Sexe; sister, Barbara Salcedo; special niece, Jackie Dumpprope; special nephews, Mitchell Leintz, and David Salcedo as well as many other nieces, nephews, and friends.
