Betty was born December 18, 1937 at Ulysses, Nebraska to Cecil and Dorothy (Young) Gaskill. She worked briefly as a telephone operator after graduating from Ulysses High School. Betty married Anton "Tony" Dolezal on March 24, 1957 in Ulysses, and two children, Bruce and Jean were born to this union.
She enjoyed playing scrabble and card games and going to garage sales. She also enjoyed volunteering at the Butler County Senior Center for many years, helping in the kitchen, serving meals and delivering meals.
Betty was an ideal military wife. Rather than dread moving, she considered each change of assignment a new adventure. She felt very fortunate to be able to experience new places with her husband.
She is survived by her husband of 64 years Anton "Tony" Dolezal of David City, Son and daughter-in-law Bruce (Francine) Dolezal of Chadron, Nebraska, Daughter and son-in-law Jean (Steve) Spohrer of Lenexa, Kansas. Grandchildren Timothy (Camille) Dolezal of New Port, Oregon, Susan Dolezal of Boise, Idaho.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents.
Betty's family would like to extend a warm thank you to the staff at St. Joseph's Villa for their exceptional care given to Betty during her stay there.
