Betty was born October 12, 1925, on a farm in Newton, Kan. She was the second child born to Albert and Ruth (May) Brown. Four more children were born of this union, and they remained in Newton until Albert’s untimely death in 1934 at the age of 52. At that time, Ruth and the children moved to Gerald, Mo. to be near her mother. 

Betty married John W. Tillman of Doniphan, Mo. in 1942 and from that union three children were born: Connie J., Russell G. and Sandra K. Later she married Marvin R. (Buck) Sherman in 1952. The family then moved to Colorado Springs, Colo. where Buck was from. To that union three children were born: Marvin E., Ronde R. and Karla J. Later she married Floyd Ransier in 1985 and the two of them moved to Canon City, Colo. After Floyd’s death in 2012, Betty moved to Torrington to be near her two remaining children, Sandi and Karla. 

Better dedicated her life to Jehovah God and was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on September 7, 1961. She spent the rest of her life as a faithful and loyal supporter of Jehovah’s heavenly Kingdom and his earthly organization. She had a firm faith in the Bible’s promise of a resurrection to life on a paradise earth where she would be reunited with her devoted family and friends.
