Elizabeth Catherine (Woehr) Mowry, age 84, of Sturgis, Michigan passed away after a short illness on April 16th, 2017 at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, MI." Betsy" was born on March 31,1933, in Fort Wayne, IN to proud parents, Vada L. Woehr (Reynolds) and Andrew Emil Woehr. She was the youngest of four siblings and adored by her Grandmother Reynolds, who raised her in the family home while both parents worked. She graduated from Fort Wayne Southside High School and began her favorite career as a homemaker. Betsy loved flowers and gardening and enjoyed the hours spent arranging flowers in the Mowry Flowers family business. Her home and gardens were always filled with bright colors and beauty. She greeted guests and pets alike for years at the front desk of Dr. Mowry's Animal Clinic. She never met a puppy or kitten she didn't love. For several years, she was the receptionist for her son-in-law, Tom Robertson's law practice in Sturgis. Her husband, Bob, her family, and her dear friends were the center of her life. Storytelling and laughter were a heartfelt part of every day. The bigger the story, the better the laugh to be shared over a chocolate latte and a scone. She is survived by her husband, Robert L.
