Betty Marie (Cain) Sheets passed away on November 12, 2020. We were blessed to have our Mom with us for 93 years.
Born on September 19, 1927 in Akron, she was a life resident of the area. Betty worked in jobs that she could do during her children’s school times, such as driving for Weaver School, cleaning houses for Seal Realty and others, and sewing flags for Hopkins Funeral Home. Later when her children were grown, she worked and retired as a secretary from The University of Akron. In her spare time, Betty enjoyed water skiing, boating, and golfing with her husband.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Allan Sheets; parents, Clara and Ferd Cain; granddaughter, Jessica Sheets; son-in-law, Michael Sowers; and daughter-in-law, Susan M. Sheets.
