 Betty Ann (Fellows) Kleinschmidt

Betty Ann (Fellows) Kleinschmidt passed peacefully on April 7, 2024 with Tony and Dawn by her side. Betty was born December 1934 and raised in Howell MI. She married Robert (1932-2022) and lived on the farm in Fowlerville MI. She is survived by her children: Rhonda, Randy (wife Candy), Tony (wife Dawn), Kenny (wife Margaret) and Brenda. Grandchildren: Shawn, Tom, Kate, Nikki, Kayla, Keri, Camri and Mariah. Great-grandchildren: Emily, Marissa, Haley, Arin, Tommi, Ryder, Tyson, Collin, Madilyn, Jayden, Nevaeh, Presley and Camren.

She loved to sing, play piano and bowl. Every time I hear “These boots are made for walking’ I will think of her. She always chewed Big Red gum when she bowled. She worked at Nickerson Farms (now Fowlerville Farms) for many years while raising her children. She loved being a part of The Sweet Adelines, a singing group where she was one of lead singers and was part of a quartet. She also sang in the church choir. She enjoyed sewing; making dresses, matching shirts for the boys, and patching up clothes.

She loved her American doll collection and providing for her husband and family; always there when anyone needed anything.

She created the best childhood for her kids and grandkids, always breaking out the tape recorder and capturing the best memories of them, reenacting waitressing, family life and of course the boys of the family always had to dress the girls as the granny’s. She always brought laughter to the family. There is no one in the world who can whistle and/or sneeze as loud as she can and loved spending time with her grandchildren and videoing them. They would dress up and play waitress, a wedding, farmer Bob and just being kids.

Arrangements entrusted to Herrmann Funeral Home. Online condolences may be expressed at
