July 22, 1929 — April 4, 2017
Elizabeth 'Betty' Mary Stuart, 87, of Campbellsport died suddenly in a fatal car accident Tuesday, April 4, 2017, in Campbellsport. Betty was born at home in Campbellsport on July 22, 1929, the daughter of Frank and Rose (Braun) Becker. She married Kenneth E. Stuart on Dec. 29, 1956, at St. Matthew's Catholic Church, Campbellsport.
Betty lived in Chicago during her nurses training and, for several years, worked there as a neonatal nurse. She continued her career as a neonatal nurse at St. Joseph's Hospital in West Bend until she and Ken adopted two sons: Mark Alan in 1963 and James Oliver in 1965. Betty also worked several other jobs in the late 1970s and 1980s, including at the Regal Ware Outlet store in Kewaskum and Meyer Ford-Mercury in Campbellsport. She was a lifelong member of St. Matthew's Catholic Church, Campbellsport, and was involved in various activities there including Mission Sewing Circle. Betty enjoyed camping and fishing with her late husband Ken, and was a very talented cook.
Betty suffered from severe diabetes most of her life but kept it managed amazingly well. She had a host of physical problems, including going to kidney dialysis three days every week for the past few years, but she never complained. With her sound mind and constant positive attitude, many people never knew about the many physical challenges she continually faced being evidence of her strong faith in God.
Betty is survived by her sons, Mark (Tracey) of Madison and James (Kim) of Kiel; her close friend, Glenn Kippenhan; grandchildren, Jonathan, William and Alicia; great-grandchild, Landyn; brother-in-law, Tom Heldt; sisters-in-law, Rita Stuart and Sandra (Royce) Fritz; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Stuart, and sisters, Tess Heldt and Margaret (Syl) Wenzlaff.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at noon Saturday, April 8, at St. Matthew Catholic Church, 406 E. Main St., Campbellsport. The Rev. Mark Jones will officiate and burial will follow in the parish cemetery.
Visitation will be Saturday, April 8, from 10 a.m. until the time of Mass.
