Betty Jean Johns, 90 years old, passed away March 16, 2020 surrounded by her loving family. She was born June 24, 1929 in Davis City, Iowa to Chester and Leota Bridger. Betty graduated from Prosser High School with the class of 1947. In 1949 she was blessed with her son, Allen Gail Rose who was the pride and joy of her life.
Betty devoted nearly 40 years to the Sunnyside Eagles F.O.E 2927 as a secretary and bookkeeper. She enjoyed watching the Seattle Mariners and TV game shows, reading romance novels, playing cards, spending time with family, and spending many hours crocheting and playing games on her iPad. In her younger years she loved to dance and sing karaoke with her two sisters, Wanda and Kay, formerly known as the “Hooter Sisters”. Betty had a special place in her heart for her caregiver, Maribel Chacon. They grew very close and she enjoyed spending her days visiting, telling stories of her past, and teaching Maribel how to crochet.
