Betty J. Whitworth, a long time resident of Milford, died on July 18, 2015 at the age of 84. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard A. �Doc� Whitworth on June 25, 2000, her parents, Michael and Edna Moyer, and sister, Marilyn �Mim� Perlich.
She is survived by her daughter, Jill Whitworth of Gahanna, Ohio, her nephew, Mike (Gwynn) Perlich of Zionsville, Indiana and many loving friends.

Betty was born in La Porte, Indiana, and was a 1953 graduate of Ball State College where she obtained degrees in English and Library and where she met Doc Whitworth, her beloved husband of forty-six years.

She was a member of the Milford United Methodist Church since 1969, a member of the GM Proving Grounds �Roving Rounders� camping group, the Michigan Knights of the Highway, the Maria Moore Questers, and past treasurer of the �On Our Own� support group. In her spare time she loved to work in her yard where she enjoyed planting flowers and vegetables. Betty also loved to knit and crochet and indulge her enjoyment of antiques.

The family would like to thank the following: Marge Knable, her best friend, Dorothy Madison, her beloved neighbor of over forty years, J. Michael Hickox, Dr. Neil Belgiano, her at-home caregivers from Age With Grace, and especially June Fenton and her wonderful staff at Serenity of Commerce, where Betty spent her last two years.
