Betty J. "Elizabeth" Rozek

March 24, 1931 — February 24, 2024

Betty Jane “Elizabeth” Rozek, resident of Eden, Wisconsin, and cherished member of her community, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on February 24, 2024, at the age of 92. Born on March 24, 1931, in Markesan, Betty was a beacon of joy and creativity throughout her life. 

 

Betty was united in marriage to Linus Rozek on December 17, 1949, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Fond du Lac. The couple built a life filled with love and devotion to each other until Linus’s passing. Betty was a dedicated and skilled punch press operator at Wells Manufacturing for over three decades, from 1962 until her retirement in 1995, where she was not only an employee but a friend to many. 

 

Betty’s talents were many; she had a passion for poetry and music, as evidenced by her Golden Poet award and her achievements as a published songwriter. Her creativity didn’t end there – she was an avid ballroom dancer, a hobby that brought her immense happiness and camaraderie in groups such as the organ club and the West Bend dance club. Betty had an affinity for waltzes. Betty loved country music and George Jones was her favorite artist, and she cherished a personal meeting with him. 

 

Betty loved thrift stores and estate sales, where she found unique items that reflected her exceptional sense of style. She was a skilled seamstress who took joy in making curtains and dress-up clothes for her great-grandchildren from repurposed fabrics. Her home and garden were a testament to her artistic and nurturing touch, where she spent countless hours ensuring everything was just right. Her main purpose in life was being a good mother, a great grandmother, as well as caring about all family and friends. 

 

Left to honor Betty’s memory are her daughters, Roxanne (Dwayne) Feuerhammer-Garfoot and Jan Giles; her granddaughter, Jessica Hennen; her grandson, Scott Feuerhammer; her great-grandchildren, Aeriane Hennen, Keilyn Whorton, Jaidan Whorton; great-great grandchildren, Kylie Richards, Norah Bennefield, and Maverick Brown. Also mourning her loss are Jane (Hank) Brown, Delores Rozek, Bernice Rademann, and Rusty Rademann, as well as many other relatives and dear friends. 

 

Preceding Betty in death were her beloved husband, Linus Rozek; her parents, Elsie Ackerman and Richard Rademann; son-in-law, Steve Feuerhammer; her brothers, Keith and Bruce Rademann; and several brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. 

 

Betty was known for her warmth, her laughter and her love of life. She will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Betty leaves behind a legacy of love, creativity, and family which will be cherished forever.
