Betty Jean (Petersen) Felt, age 92 of Stanton, died Thursday April 22, 2021, at Stanton Health Center in Stanton. Born on January 20, 1929, the daughter of Floyd F. and Frances (Leu) Petersen in rural Stanton, Nebraska. She was baptized into the Lutheran faith as an infant. Her parents lived on several farms throughout Nebraska as well as a brief stint in Idaho.

On December 23, 1956, Betty was united in marriage to Darrel Stanley Felt at First Methodist Church in Seattle, Washington. Their first child, Brian was born there in 1957, and shortly after that, they returned to Stanton County, Nebraska to take up farming. Soon after, their second child, Cindy was born. The Felts spent much of their lives involved in agriculture in Stanton County. Betty worked in the restaurant industry for many years as a cook and waitress at the Stanton Coffee Shop. She was involved in coordinating the lease and cleanup of the Stanton County Fairgrounds buildings. In 2007, Betty moved to Stanton where she continued to be active in the Garden Club and Stanton United Methodist Church where she had been a longtime member. Betty's hobbies include cross-stitching, reading, puzzles, and attending auctions. In 2011, Betty moved to the Stanton Health Center to receive much-needed assistance due to mobility issues. She continued to pursue her hobbies along with enjoying the company of her many new neighbors in the manor.

Survivors include two children, son, Brian and Barbara Felt of Aurora, CO; daughter Cindy and Garry Pirch of Summersville, MO; grandson Will and Carolyn McKee of Kansas City, MO; two brothers Leroy and Bonnie Petersen of Wisner; Ralph and Rita Petersen of Omaha; a sister-in-law Janet Gehrig of Romeoville, IL.

Preceding Betty in death are her parents and husband Darrel in 1993.

Memorials directed to Stanton Fire Department.
