Betty Shobe
June 23, 1924 - November 30, 2017

Place of Birth: Rural Watford City, ND
Residence: Bismarck, formerly of New Town, ND
Age: 93

Betty June Shobe, 93, of Bismarck, formerly of New Town, passed away November 30, 2017 in a Bismarck hospital.

She was born June 23, 1924 at the family farm near Watford City, North Dakota to John and Harriet (Glascock) Lawlar. She graduated from Watford City High School and in her young life worked on their family farm before going to work in Minneapolis. She returned to assist on the family farm while her brothers served in World War II and then began work as a bookkeeper in Sanish, ND. While there she met her future husband Charles Shobe. They were married December 8, 1945 and lived on the family ranch near Reunion Bay south of New Town.

Betty spent her life raising her family, partnering with Charles on their grain farm and cattle ranch. She was a fine horsewoman and ranching partner alongside Charles, and in later years, Scott and Trudy Ruland. She sewed, baked, cooked, gardened and enjoyed teaching her children and grandchildren all of these skills until her health prevented it.

She was an active member of Grand Valley and Bethel Lutheran Churches, participating in Ladies Aid/ Circle and Sunday School education. She encouraged and contributed transportation and other work towards her children's music and school activities, attending many recitals, concerts, and other school functions. Charles and Betty were avid dancers and enjoyed sharing this with friends when their busy schedules allowed.

Betty is survived by her children Marcia (Rod) Olson, Livingston, MT; Jayson (Debby), Lewistown, MT; Cathy (Rollie) Morud, Bemidji, MN; Guy (Judy), Rapid City, SD; Joel (Susan), St. Cloud, MN; and Mary (Dana) Syvrud, Bismarck, fifteen grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren, sisters-in-law Frances Sunwall and Marjorie McRoberts, and many nieces and nephews.

Betty was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Charles, her parents, brothers Gene, Glen, Bud, and Carroll, and sisters Vivian and Dorothy Ann.
Betty's family would like to express their appreciation to the caring staff at Edgewood Vista Village and Baptist Health Care Center.

We want to express our sympathy and let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find comfort in God‘s promises in the Bible: (Isaiah 25:8) “He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Rev 21:4) “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” May your loving memories and the Bible promises comfort you now and in the days ahead.
