Betty Jane DeShaw
September 21, 1935 - May 17, 2022

Place of Birth: Sidney, MT
Residence: Sidney, MT
Age: 86

Betty Jane DeShaw went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, May 17th. Surrounded by her family, she peacefully returned to the arms of her loving husband, Larry DeShaw in Heaven.

Betty was born at her home in Sidney, Mt, to John and Alma Miller (Vanderhoff) on September 21, 1935. She was the youngest of three, and is survived by her two older brothers; Lewis and Gene Miller.

Betty grew up in Sidney, MT, where she met and married her husband, Larry DeShaw on August 8, 1953. Together they raised six children; Mike, Dennis, Pat, Rosalie, Brian and Kevin.

Betty DeShaw was a kind soul whose charm and wit attracted many lifelong friends. But first and foremost, she was a loving wife and devoted mother to her six children. From the moment she married her husband Larry, Betty dedicated her entire life to her family. She never missed a school function, sports event, charitable fundraiser, or church function. In the process, Betty created a legacy that includes professors, scientists, healers, and business leaders.

Beneath Betty’s quiet exterior, she was a courageous woman, never shrinking from the challenges that life presented. Even with Larry working out of town frequently, Betty managed a household and even ran a family farm, while raising a daughter and five sons. And in her final battle, Betty’s faith and courage allowed her to face cancer with no fear and with remarkable grace, confident that she would soon be reunited with her dear Larry in the kingdom of Heaven.

Betty especially loved her Grandchildren; she loved to play bingo and visiting her many, many friends and relatives.
Grateful for having shared in Betty’s life are her Brothers, Lewis and Gene Miller, her children; Mike DeShaw, Dennis DeShaw, Pat (Debbie) DeShaw, Rosalie (Chris) Given, Brian (Coral) DeShaw, Kevin (Cassie) DeShaw, her Grandchildren, Daryl DeShaw, Joey DeShaw, Trevor (Heather) DeShaw, Cherise (Eric) Davies, Brittany (Lee) Riddle, Derek (Teron) DeShaw, Austin Haag, Jaime Wolfe, Christopher Given, Paige Given, Danielle DeShaw, Jennifer (Kody) Kahla, Samantha (Colton) Toren, Zach DeShaw, Joslynn DeShaw and her 19 Great-Grandchildren.

Betty is preceded in death by her loving husband, Larry DeShaw.

Brian and Coral,
My family mourns with you at this time, but we know that your Mom joins a host of other saints in the Heavenly Chorus and we all look forward to that time when we will be reunited again with them.
I remember your parents very well. I know that my Mom enjoyed coffee with your Mom, Clara, and Maxine when we had our trailer across the bridge. May our Lord and Savior be your Hope and Comfort at this time.
In Sympathy,
Carmen, John and Jonathan Madler
