March 20, 1949 - November 16, 2021
Betty Walters died November 16 at home in Austin, Texas after a long battle with cancer. She was born March 20, 1949, in Scottsbluff, Nebraska to Rachel and John Schwartz. Betty grew up in Scottsbluff where she met the love of her life, Richard Walters. They married on November 15, 1969. She leaves behind her husband of 52 years; two sons--Ryan Walters and wife Dina and their daughter Emma, of Chicago; and Brent Walters and wife Sarah, and son Leo of Austin; her sister Judy Greene of Scottsbluff; and brother John Schwartz and his wife Pam of Kyle, TX. She is preceded in death by her brother Roger Rupp, his widow Judy resides in Gering, NE. Betty was known as "Nanny" to her two beautiful grandchildren - "what happens at Nanny's house stays at Nanny's house!" Betty has many friends and colleagues at Whole Foods Market in Austin after 19 years as National Payroll Tax Manager. In 2019, Betty, Richard and family took an Alaskan cruise to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. It was one of Betty's greatest joys to spend that time with the people she loved most. She hated decorating for the holidays but made the best plum bread on Christmas mornings. Everyone loved when she made cabbage burgers, French toast, or mayonnaise cake. After many years, Betty finally succeeded at getting her husband to like creamed tuna and peas on toast, one of her favorites.
