Elizabeth "Betty" Rose (Wotta) Malovey was reunited with her Lord Thursday, November 22, 2018 at Crystal Woods in Kalamazoo. Betty was born February, 23, 1924 in Bronson, Michigan to Amelia and Frank Wotta. She grew up in Bronson and married Floyd Malovey on May 9, 1942. Later that year, the couple moved to Battle Creek, MI. The couple had two children, Sharon and Larry. The couple were married over 60 years until Floyd's death in 2007. Betty spent her working life on the cereal production line at Kellogg's in Battle Creek. She was fiercely loyal to Kellogg's cereal and would give disapproving looks to any family member who dared have a box of Post or General Mills cereal in their cupboard. She was a member of the 25 Year Club and retired in 1985. She also remained active with the Kellogg Retirees Club for years after her retirement. A devout Catholic all her life, Betty was a long time member of Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Battle Creek. Along with Floyd, Betty was part of the Malovey team that ushered for the Saturday night 5 PM mass at St. Joe for over 30 years. In her spare time, Betty enjoyed traveling, including many bus trips throughout the country. She loved visiting her sisters in Bronson, sharing time at her children's homes, and attending her grandchildren's concerts, performances, and dance recitals. Over the years, she went on many trips with her family including, Mackinac Island, Washington D.C., and many mini-vacations to Weber's Inn in Ann Arbor. Betty also loved working on home improvement projects for her family with painting being her specialty. She also spent innumerable hours playing solitaire. She loved polka music and could be found watching the Lawrence Welk show on Saturday nights after church. Betty was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a sister Dorothy Oxenrider, two brothers-in law, Paul Oxenrider and Fred Oxenrider, her daughter Sharon Cooper and a granddaughter Molly Malovey.
