    Betty A. Lippert, 88, of Beardstown died Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020 at Heritage Health in Beardstown.
    She was born Aug. 10, 1932, in Beardstown, the daughter of Marvin Ray and Katherine Schweer Hungerford. She married Max Alden Lippert on March 2, 1952, and he preceded her in death on July 26, 2011.
    She is survived by three daughters, Judy Bowman of Jacksonville, Karen (husband Steve) Reveal of Jacksonville, and Janet Fritz of Beardstown; one son, David Shores of Georgia; eight grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and one brother, Pete (wife Nettie) Hungerford of California.
    She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her son-in-law Jeff Fritz; and two brothers, Glenn Lauderback and Donnie Hungerford.  
    Betty graduated from Beardstown High School in the class of 1950. She was a baptized and confirmed member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Beardstown. She was a secretary for the administrator of Schmidt Memorial Hospital in Beardstown and worked at the Secretary of State Office in Springfield.
    Betty enjoyed crossword puzzles and camping with her husband. She was a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan and one of her happiest moments in life was watching them win the World Series. Betty’s greatest joy was her grandkids and great-grandkids. Her personality was contagious and she will be greatly missed by all those she leaves behind.
