Betty graduated from Reinbeck High School in 1950 and married Stanley Chvojka on June 21, 1950 at Bethany Presbyterian Church in Grundy Center.  Betty traveled with Stan as he entered basic training with the Army in 1952 in Kansas.  Stan finished serving honorably until 1954.  They then farmed together on Stan’s family’s farm, where they raised their three children. 

Betty was not only active with the farming and raising of livestock, she participated in many groups, such as Hobby Club, with the Reinbeck Church of Christ, and with the Community Church of Hudson.

Betty enjoyed gardening, camping, and traveling, but most of all, her children and grandchildren.
