HOLLSOPPLE R.D. — COUGHENOUR – Betty Jane (Sipe), 87, Hollsopple R.D., went to her heavenly home Sept. 21, 2013, at Siemon’s Lakeview Manor, where she received exceptional and loving care. Born March 3, 1926, in Ferndale, daughter of Harold T. and Irene (Howard) Sipe. Preceded in death by parents; an infant brother; brothers-in-law, Louis C. Hersh and James Webreck; and sister-in-law, Barby Lou (Coughenour) Webreck. She is survived by her loving husband, Karl, to whom she was married for 67 years. Also survived by sister, Edna Hersh, and brother-in-law, Donald J. Coughenour, married to Carol (Stiffler). Betty is survived by son, Harold J., married to Sue (Holsopple), and their children, Karla Coughenour and Krista, married to Lucas Shaffer; son, Ronald G., married to Brenda (Yoder), and their children, Ronald Couchenour Jr., married to Judy (Morgan), and Laurie, married to Thomas Grosik; daughter, Patti A., married to Frank E. Besyk, and their son, Brett E. Besyk, married to Jennifer (Bendik); and son, Terry L., and his children, Rachael, married to Michael Colon and Hannah, Elisheba and Makayla. Betty is survived by 11 great-grandchildren, Samantha, Grant, Monica, Clay, Sage, Ryan, Jacob, Nicholas, Olivia, Julianna and Aubrey. Betty loved her Lord above all else; spending many hours reading scriptures and was a wonderful prayer warrior. She sang in the church choir for 30 years, taught Sunday school at least 50 years and was Bible school superintendent with an enrollment of 60 children for many years. She made her church’s history by being the first female elected as council president. Betty was a very hard working farm wife where she baked eight loaves of bread every Monday, baked a cake or cookies daily, churned butter and made large meals to feed her family of six all on a wood burning cookstove. Betty also loved to knit, crochet, embroider and sew. People from all over the country have beautiful items lovingly made by her. She washed huge loads of laundry every week using a wringer washer and hanging them out to dry on a clothesline. Betty raised a huge garden and canned, pickled and dried everything she possibly could. She made the most delicious elderberry jelly around. A very special thank you to Horizons Hospice for their compassionate care. Family will receive friends from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at George E. Mason Funeral Home Inc., Davidsville, and from 9 a.m. until time of funeral service at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, Main Street, Boswell, the Rev. Larry Hoover, officiating. Interment, Maple Spring Cemetery.
