Betty Hanenkrat Klingler

July 4, 1941 — December 5, 2022

Betty Lou (Kaiser) Hanenkrat Klingler, age 81, of Dover, passed away, Monday, December 5, 2022, in Hennis Care Center at Dover following a period of declining health.

Betty was an avid reader and passed her love for books on to the many preschool kids that she taught at Happy Day Preschool.  Later in life she also became an accountant and worked for Waldenmeyer Builders and Raeder Construction as an accountant.  But her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren.  She was also an active member of LifeBridge Community Church in Dover.

Betty is preceded in death by her parents; first husband, Warren (Sonny) Hanenkrat; second husband, Jack Klingler; son-in-law, Lonnie Shotwell; and brother, Donnie Kaiser; brothers-in-law, Glenn Smith, Scooter Hartmann and John Banker; sister-in-law, Delania Kaiser; and many furry friends.

The family will greet guests on Friday, December 9, 2022, from 5:00 – 7:00 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home and Crematory at New Philadelphia.  A funeral service will be held on Saturday, December 10, 2022 where Pastor Chris Miletti will lead a service celebrating Betty’s life beginning at 10:00 AM.
