Age 64, of Perry, passed away Monday, June 3, 2019, at Memorial Healthcare in Owosso. Per her wishes cremation has taken place and private services are to take place.

Betty was born Nov. 6, 1954, to Elmer and Dora (Koenders) Manarky in Detroit.

She married the love of her life Norman Kenneth Schultz, who predeceased her in 2003.

Betty enjoyed going to the casino, playing the slots on her iPad, watching Jerry Springer, “Shark Tank” and the news. She also enjoyed watching and interacting with her parakeet, Alex. Betty was a selfless person; she was always putting others needs first and was elated when everyone around her was happy. Another of her redeeming qualities she possessed was her honesty; many times telling people exactly what she was thinking but this is what made her special to all those around her, she was true to herself.

Betty is survived by her gang to include her children Susan (Gary) Lewis and Norman (Jessica) Schultz Jr.; grandchildren Michael Schultz, Angel (Jackson Courtier) Schultz, Ashley Schultz, Gary Lewis Jr., Shawn Lewis, Kristina Schultz and Alexander Schultz; and many cousins and friends.

She was predeceased by her parents Elmer and Dora Manarky; husband Norman Sr.; and beloved sister Frances.
