Betty Gilman Harvey Obituary

Betty Gilman Harvey passed away March 22, 2022, at Schmitt Woodland Hills in Richland Center.

Betty was born May 20, 1931, to Fred and Alice Keyser in Vernon County. Her mother passed away shortly after Betty’s birth and she was raised by her aunt Hattie Glass in Readstown. She married Virgil Gilman in 1949 and they lived nearly their entire married life in Richland Center. After Virgil’s passing, Betty eventually met and married Tommy Harvey of Richland Center.
Betty was a devoted wife and homemaker who enjoyed keeping a “spotless” house. She enjoyed traveling. Whether camping in Hatfield, exploring the great American west, spring breaking on the white beaches of Gulf Shores, AL or exploring the history of Europe, Betty was always ready and eager for the trip. Other interest included cooking, lefse making, card playing and cross-word puzzles.

Betty is survived by her children Michael (Linda) Gilman of Arizona, Kathleen (Scott) Schurmer of California, and step-son Tommy (Barbara) Harvey of Richland Center; and special niece Sharon Taylor of Janesville, WI; three grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and many relative and friends.
Betty was preceded in death by husbands Virgil and Tommy, her parents and her siblings.
