Betty Stokes Life Story

Betty Dell Stokes was born in Des Moines, Iowa on January 22nd, 1925 to Robert & Eva Parrish.  She spent almost her whole life in the Des Moines area.  Her husband, Jack Clifford Stokes passed away in 2002 and a year later she moved to Arkansas to be close to her only child, Twyla Pease.

While in Iowa she attended church regularly, enjoyed reading and she loved to garden, especially raspberries, which they sold.  When she moved to Arkansas, she loved to help Twyla behind the scenes making quilts and became known as “The Elf”.  She only knew how to do a few quilting things, but she would spend hours on that, along with walking the dog.  She moved back to the Norwalk area in 2017 and spent the last few years at Norwalk Nursing and Rehabilitation.

Betty Dell Stokes passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020 at the age of 95.  She had a good life and loved God.  She is happy to be with Him now!  She is preceded in death by her husband Jack and her parents Robert & Eva.

Betty is survived by her sister, Evelyn (Jerry) Miller in Idaho, daughter Twyla Pease of Cumming and grandson Ryan Miller of West Des Moines.

We hope to see you again someday Elfie, we love you!
