Betty Jane born on 3/11/29, died on 9/9/20 Betty passed away peacefully with her family by her side. On any given day you could find Betty sitting in her favorite rocking chair reading a book with a stack of them next to her. Without fail there was always a cribbage board on the table where her and Jack left off the night before. Sometime during the day, you would also hear the whistle of the tea kettle and always find the light above the stove on, which was a reminder of how safe you were at grandma's house. The cookie jar was always filled with windmill cookies. And how can we forget the many trips to McDonalds in the big white Monte Carlo. When we reflect on Betty's life, we can't help but think about how she worked behind the scenes. You would find her sitting at the desk at Jack Short Studios, riding passenger in the motorhome, and taking care of her grandchildren. Betty had a great love for her children, grandchildren and dear friends. She would always stop what she was doing to take time to listen to her children. Her support to some seemed quiet, but in her own way she was always supporting those in her family that she cared deeply for. In her final days she quietly showed a love and passion for her Lord and Savior. You could find her every morning doing daily devotions, reading her Bible and other encouraging passages. This was her prayer daily, "Lord, I'm so human and make foolish mistakes. And worse yet, I willfully sin against you. Please forgive me, change me, restore me, and use me for your name's sake." Today Betty is completely restored. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Jack, sons Earl and Mark Nutter, her siblings, John and Barb and son in law Ron Kasiorek. She is survived by her children, Jeanie Kasiorek, Joan (Tom) Field and Spring (Rick) Harbison. Grandchildren: Jason (Kathy) Kasiorek, Chris (Connie) Kasiorek, Stacy (Lee) Carter, Maria (Steve) Peterson, Erin Leonard, and Nicholas Mena. Great grandchildren: Alan, Caitlin, Brody, Cyrus, Ben, Kareena, Mackenzie, Kal-El, Knox, and Cassius. Her brothers Carl McEwen and Jack (Linda) McEwen along with many nieces and nephews. A service will be held at Northwest Methodist Church memorial garden, 3140 North 3rd Street, Kalamazoo Michigan 49009, on Saturday, September 19 2020 at 2:00 PM.
