Betty Irene Dencklau was born November 15, 1940 in Fort Dodge. She attended Colfax #3 Country School near the family home in Vincent. On November 28, 1959 she married Gary Gilbert Anderson at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Vincent. The couple made their home in Coalville and later rural Duncombe. Betty enjoyed playing games on the computer, playing cards, going to the casino and having game night at her home. Many special memories have been made on game night. We would laugh until we cried. Betty had an open-door policy. Everyone was welcome and dear to her heart, the love and warmth could be felt by all who entered her home. She will be greatly missed by many. The memories and friendships will last a lifetime. She lived life to the fullest and enjoyed every moment.
