Betty Layman Obituary

Betty Louise Layman went home to be with Jesus on December 23, 2023. She was born October 27, 1929, in Indianapolis, Indiana to William Howard and Nora Rooks. It was at Butler University where she met Donald Layman, who happened to be cutting down a tree.

Soon after she married him and they moved to Humbolt County, where Don worked in the logging industry. They had a daughter, Rebecca, in 1958.

Betty worked at HSU for 32 years as a cashier and later in the accounting department. She loved to walk the campus and admire the landscape. She became a grandma in 1980 to Reannon, and enjoyed spending a lot of time with her, especially on weekends.

Betty enjoyed going to the Arcata Marsh for picnics and Redwood Park to hike the trails. You might have seen her walking around town and riding the bus. She also looked forward to flying to the Midwest when she could to visit family. Betty was kind and caring and had a sense of humor with a contagious smile.

She is preceded in death by her husband Don, her brother Jim, her brother Bill, and her sister Edna. She is survived by her daughter Rebecca, granddaughter Reannon (Darrell), great-grandsons Dwayne and Travis, and many nieces and nephews.

We would like to thank the staff at Granada for taking such good care of her for the last four years.

At Betty’s request, no service will be held. We would also like to thank Humboldt Cremation for their services.
