Betty Stover Obituary

Betty M. Stover, of Spring Mills, passed away Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at Centre Care.  She was 88.  Born April 18, 1935, in Ingleby, Betty was a daughter of the late Edwin H. and Mae I. (Wingard) Zimmerman.  She was a 1953 graduate of the former East Penns Valley High School where she was very active in class activities.  On April 5, 1955, Betty married the love of her life, Lester E. Stover who preceded her in death.  When Lester passed away, he took a piece of Betty’s heart with him.  They are now together, forever. 

Betty is survived by four daughters, Catherine “Kitty” Stover-Foor (Lynn), Deb Meeker (Steve), Patricia Thornhill (Virgil), and Jody Young (Paul): two sons, Lester Stover (Carol) and Calvin Stover (Amy), and two sisters in law, Sandy and Shirley Zimmerman.  Also surviving are twenty-three grandchildren, twenty-three great grandchildren, plus one special great granddaughter soon to arrive, and two great great grandchildren.  Betty was preceded in death by a daughter, Anne Stover, a grandson, Scott Richardson, an infant grandson, CJ Kindle, one sister, Martha Rossman and two brothers, Robert and Edwin Zimmerman. 

Betty was known as the “Lunch Lady” because she was employed at the cafeteria of the Penns Valley High School where she retired from with 20+ years of service.  She was of the Methodist faith.  She enjoyed playing bingo, going to the casinos, feeding the birds, (especially hummingbirds) and attending Grange Fair.  She and Lester traveled to various places in their retirement years with friends.  Most of all, Betty enjoyed the time she spent traveling with her family, or be it whatever they were doing.   

In accordance with Betty’s wishes, all services are private.  Contributions in her memory may be given to Penns Valley EMS, 106 Ross Hill Road, Spring Mills, PA 16875 or to The Hope Fund of Penns Valley, POB 427, Centre Hall, PA 16828.
