BETTY LEE GANSCHOW

Betty Lee Ganschow, age 100, died in her sleep on Oct. 31 in Lancaster, CA. She was born in Kearney, NE Oct. 3, 1921. She was raised on a farm till her older brother started high school. Then their parents sent them to California for a better education than their small town could offer. After Betty graduated high school in Santa Monica, she went to business school. She met her husband when she got a job at Douglas Aircraft. After the war they were married in 1947.

They started their own printing business in Bell, CA. They had two daughters - Nancy Ganschow Rody and Gail Ganschow Cambra. She had eight grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren with another due in December.

She handled adversity with grace, losing her husband when she was only 44. “When life can’t be changed, you just have to make it better”.

Betty was a long time member of the Republic Women’s Club. She published their newsletter for many years. She loved working in her yard and traveling, going to every state with her trailer as well as many trips abroad.

She always pushed her family to do their absolute best. Achievement has been her legacy, with her family members all being successful. She has been an inspiration and a rock to us and will be sorely missed.
