Betty J. Marx

September 11, 1926 — March 5, 2021

Betty J. Marx, 94, of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, died Friday, March 5, 2021 at Adelaide Place in Fond du Lac where she received very good care and love for three years.

While knitting and watching tennis, Betty “let Virgil cook because he didn’t like mine”, she told us, but Virgil enjoyed Betty’s baking “buckets of cookies”, which she brought to grandchildren eventually. Betty enjoyed her grandchildren and her friends and the “herd of cats” that followed her on her walks while she lived in Rosendale, Wisconsin.

Her siblings include: Bob Faas (deceased); William Faas Jr (Beverly), Marlene (Don) Horstman, and Dolly Grapes. Betty was proceeded in death by her parents, husband, Virgil, and daughter in law, Roberta Marx.
