Betty Yeager

February 24, 1932 — December 12, 2020

Betty Jo (Thompson) Yeager or affectionately called "Mama", was born February 24, 1932 in Utopia, Texas. She entered into rest on December 12, 2020 at the age of 88 in her childhood home. Betty moved with her family to Ozona in 1943 where she completed high school in 1949. Then she attended Sul Ross University where she met and married Gene Albert Yeager on June 30, 1950. After Gene completed his time in the service he went on to earn his degree from Texas A&M University. Betty worked as a secretary for three of Gene's professors and always got a kick out of earning her P.H.T. degree (Putting Hubby Through). \r\n \r\nBetty was a member of the Baptist Church in Utopia where anytime good Christian music was playing you could find her on the front row. She was a friend to everyone who knew her. She was a high school volleyball player, bowler in the women's league in Forney, Texas and an avid Texas A&M and Spurs sports fan. Betty loved her family and was especially active in the lives of her grandsons. \r\n \r\nShe was preceded in death by her parents Curly and Pearl (Norman) Thompson, brother Bud Thompson and husband Gene Yeager. Betty is survived by her son Dennis and wife Jan, grandsons Jason and Todd, Todd's wife Ryan and great grandsons Griffin and Oliver. \r\n\r\nA Celebration of Life Graveside Service will be held Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 1:00 PM at Vanderpool Cemetery, Vanderpool, Texas with Brother Lee Bevly officiating.\r\nMemorials may be made to the Utopia Baptist Church and Vanderpool Cemetery Association.\r\n
