Obituary for Elizabeth "Betty" Kile

Elizabeth “Betty” J. (Volkmann) Kile, daughter of the late Maurice Volkmann and Georgia Mae (Brown) Volkmann, was born on November 27, 1930, in Elkhart, Indiana, and departed this life at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, following a long illness on August 13, 2019. She was 88 years, 8 months and 17 days before arriving at Heaven’s Gate to be greeted by husband Robert G. Kile who preceded her in death. They were married on February 13, 1949, in Elkhart, Indiana, where Betty grew up and attended Elkhart High School. They made their home in Cabool, Missouri since 2003.

Betty enjoyed crocheting hot pads and dish cloths for family and friends, collecting owls, reading, telling stories of days long ago and always cherished the moments of family visiting. Betty played the flute and loved to sing.

Betty was a member of the Faith Community Church of the Nazarene in Mountain Grove, Missouri, where she loved attending service until her health no longer permitted her to attend.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Bob, her son Gerald Kile, her sister, Beverly Headley, her brothers, Ed Poth and Larry Volkmann.

Betty is survived by her six children, Daughter, Elaine Larson and husband Dennis of Boise, Idaho; Son, Bruce Kile of Mountain Grove, Missouri; Daughter, Roberta Urena and husband Ramon of Anchorage, Alaska; Daughter, Sue Kile of Holmen, Wisconsin; Daughter, Mary Wilson and husband Bobby of Redlands, California; and Son, Brian Kile and wife Marlene of Norwood, Missouri; and one sister, Pat Beehler of Elkhart, Indiana; 15 Grandchildren, 21 Great-Grandchildren, 5 Great-Great-Grandchildren, and 5 Great-Great-Great-Grandchildren, a host of relatives and friends who will miss her very much.
