Burial was in Springdale Cemetery, Clinton.

Betty was born Aug. 11, 1939, in Clinton, the daughter of Edward and Mae Hammond Kennedy.  She was a 1958 graduate of Elvira High School.

Betty is survived by her husband, Robert; daughters, Kristine Grossman and Annette (Duane) Schmidt, both of Clinton; sons, Dan (Paige) Grossman of Cedar Rapids and James (Melissa) Grossman of Chicago, Ill..; grandchildren, Sarah, Jace, Nikki, Kara, Jacqui and Josh; great-grandchildren, Nevaeh and Jacobi; a sister, Janice of Low Moor; and many nieces nephews, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Larry Kennedy.

Memorials will be directed to the wishes of the family.
