Betty Jean Romberg, age 73, of Weyauwega, passed away on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 with her family by her side, after a short illness.
Betty was born on December 7, 1942 to the late Herbert and Bertha Krueger in the Town of Dupont. Betty grew up in the Manawa area on the family farm. She graduated from Little Wolf High School in 1962 and was united in marriage to James Romberg on December 4, 1965 in Big Falls. Betty farmed with her husband for 11 years before accepting employment at Hillshire Farms in New London, where she worked for 25 years. However, Betty’s main job was being a mom. She enjoyed camping, picking on the men, puzzles, word searches, watching the birds, flower gardening, painting ceramics and spending time with her family. Known as Mom and Grandma to many, she had a special place in her heart for her extended family.
Betty is survived by her husband James; children, Rhonda (Dave) Anderson, Almond; Lisa (Bill) Tessen, New London; Tammy (Tony) Long, Clintonville; Todd (Ashley) Romberg, Weyauwega and Tom (Krystal) Van, Bear Creek; grandchildren: Devon, Daren, Derik, Dylan, Tony (Jamie), Gregory, Dustin, Emberlie, Ellee, Jamison and Finnlee and great-grandsons, Wyatt and Silas. Betty was preceded in death by her parents; mother and father-in-law, Kimble and Eunice Romberg and brothers, Robert and Marlin Krueger.
A memorial service for Betty will be held at 11:00 a.m. at Emanuel Lutheran Church in New London, on Saturday, April 2, 2016. Rev. William Heiges will be officiating. Visitation will be held from 9-11 at the church.
