Elizabeth Virginia (Betty) Mueller Jimeson was born on April 30, 1926, at White Cloud, KS.  She was the second child and only daughter born to Carl J. Mueller and Ethel A. Bruning Mueller.  She grew up in the Robinson and Denton areas attending Union School.  She attended Denton High School thru her Junior year and attended her senior year and graduated from Hiawatha High School in 1944.

On January 28, 1945, she married Glen S. Jimeson at her parents’ home northeast of Hiawatha.  Following Glen’s discharge from the Army in 1946, they establish their home 5 1/2 miles north of Hiawatha on highway 73.  Betty was a helpmate to Glen on the farm.  They raised cattle, hogs and row crops.  Betty also raised a garden and was an excellent homemaker and cook.  She was a member of Bethany United Church of Christ and the Women’s Guild.

In 2002 Betty and Glen moved into Hiawatha.  In September of 2014 they moved to Meadowlark Hills Retirement Center in Manhattan to be closer to family.  When her health started failing, she moved to Wroten House on the Meadowlark campus. Betty died October 13, 2021 at the Meadowlark Campus.

Betty’s greatest joy was working alongside of “Jim” and her family time with all her relatives. She also loved to dance.   Betty always had a full cookie jar and desserts in the freezer.
