With dignity and grace Betty Van De Loo Eiting, age 81 passed into the arms of Jesus surrounded by her loving family. Betty was born May 20, 1940, to Edward and Margie Van De Loo. The day she was brought home from the hospital, her older siblings ran to the end of the driveway to exclaim “we have a new baby”. Betty was the first of the Van De Loo children to be born at a hospital.
Betty was united in marriage to Richard Eiting on November 25, 1959 at St. Francis Catholic Church in Hollandtown. She was a lifelong member of St. Francis. Her faith and St. Francis parish were very important to her.
Betty found great joy in doing for others. She spent many hours of service at St. Paul Home, St. Katharine Drexel Parish, and helping in what she thought was a small way but made a big impact on many.
Her greatest joys were her children and grandchildren. Grandma was their biggest cheerleader and confidant. Sunday afternoons consisted of sheepshead and dinner at grandmas.
Betty is survived by children: Greg (Jane) Eiting, Mark (Julie) Eiting, Sara Eiting, Patty (Paul) Lamers, and Tom (Michelle) Eiting; grandchildren: Tim, Matt (special friend Jordan) and Adam Eiting, Ryan, Nick (special friend Lexy), Erin (special friend Brandon), and Luke Eiting, Jenny (fiancé Marco), Andy, and Emily Lamers, Michaela (fiancé Michael), Jake (special friend Justine), Mitchell, and Madelyn Eiting; brothers, sisters and in-laws: Fr. Willard Van De Loo, Dorothy (Connie) Van De Hey, Jerry Van De Loo, Cliff (Jan) Van De Loo, Dick (Kay) Van De Loo, Pat Marx, Judy Eiting, Jack Berghuis, Mike Janssen, Cliff Feldkamp; numerous nieces, nephews, other relative and many friends.
