OBITUARY

Betty Jean Sherertz, 94, of Marion, Illinois, passed away on January 6, 2022, surrounded by her family. Betty was born at home in Marion, the daughter of Roy Ernest Deaton and Mary Elizabeth "Bessie" (Opie) Deaton. Betty married Jack E. Sherertz on April 29, 1950, in Piggott, Arkansas. Together they shared 55 years of marriage until his death in 2005.

Mrs. Sherertz has always been a very hard worker, from her early days working at General Telephone until her latest work as a waitress. She used her many skills over the years helping area businesses grow and thrive. She enjoyed walks down her driveway for daily exercise, cooking delicious meals for her family, who describe her as a baker extraordinaire. She was adamant about keeping a clean and tidy home and loving her family well. She was a huge fan of Louis L'Amour western books.

Survivors include her son, Larry Sherertz (Sharon); her grandson, Josh (Cindy) Sherertz; her great-grandchildren, Riley and Sayler Wachter; her brother, George Deaton, along with several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
