Tombstone Tuesday January 28, 2014 Elizabeth (Betty) Kaake Tietz

Elizabeth Jean Kaake Tietz was born on January 27, 1934.  She is the first born twin daughter of a set of identical twins born to Rose (Omalley) and Charles Kaake.  Her sister is Patricia Louise Kaake Matthews who celebrated her 80th birthday yesterday.   Elizabeth or Betty as we knew her married Howard Frank Tietz in December 5, 1952.  Howard was the son of Howard Edward and Ethel (Reid) Tietz. They had five children; three sons, Gary, David and Mark and two daughters, Patti and Amy.

Betty worked for the local bank when her children were in school and later for Dr Harrington who was a local Doctor of Obstetrics.  She died of cancer on September 27, 1994.  The photo above is a favorite of mine. Betty was my mother-in-law and this photo is from my High School graduation. She is holding her Grandson, my son, Shawn.
