Betty L. Klingel, age 98 of Waldo, died Saturday, July 8, 2023, at the Vancrest Nursing Home of Upper Sandusky. She was born on May 12, 1925, in Marion to the late Benjamin J. and Bessie M. (Earl) Foos.

Betty was a 1943 graduate of Marion Harding High School. She was a charter member of the Timothy Lutheran Church of Marion as well as a member of the Waldo American Legion Auxiliary. In her free time, Betty enjoyed cooking, baking, canning, and freezing all types of foods. Her favorite thing to do though was to spend time with her family.

On August 21, 1945, in Greenup, Kentucky, Betty married Paul Klingel who preceded her in death on August 5, 1991.

Betty is survived by her daughter, Linda (Gene) Peak of Waldo; four grandchildren: Heather Peak, Kevin (Nissa) Peak, Nathan (Nicole) Klingel and Jared Klingel; eight great-grandchildren: Ethan, Samantha, Tyler, Andruw, Gabrielle, Garrison, Ellie, and Greyson; one great-great-grandchild: Aubriela and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, Betty was preceded in death by her son, Michael (Teresa) Klingel, four sisters: Thelma (George) Wolfe, Mildred (Ray) Crook, Hazel (Kenneth) Owings, Elsie (Don) Leeper and two brothers: Dale (Rosemary) and Everett (Francis) Foos.
