Betty Ann (nee Huber) Heim passed away peacefully on Nov. 13, 2023 surrounded by her children. She was 89. She was born in Milwaukee on Oct. 28, 1934, the daughter of John V. and Elizabeth Huber.
Betty attended grade school at St. Jerome’s in Oconomowoc and graduated from Milwaukee Pius. On Sept. 3, 1955, she married, Ray Heim, the boy next door, and enjoyed over sixty-six years of various adventures together. Most of her fondest memories revolved around her family and friends. She loved family gatherings, travel, the neighborhood get-togethers, camping trips, and time spent with grandchildren. In addition, she enjoyed wood-working, knitting, playing bridge and crafting. Betty was a great homemaker providing great meals, canning, and sewing.
Betty was a woman of strong faith, an active member of the Catholic church. She lived her faith through her Christian actions and ministries, and was a great role model to her family and friends. As a stay-at-home mother and daycare provider, she nurtured many children.
Betty is survived by her children Paul (Julie), Barb (Dan) Anderson, Dave (Rebecca), Karen (Steve) Myers-Bonander, and Chris (Charlie) Hampton. She has 20 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren (with 1 on the way), and numerous nieces and nephews. Further survived by daughter-in-law Cindy Heim. Betty was preceded in death by her husband Ray, son Mike, grandson Adam Hampton and her brothers Carl and Hans.
