Died: August 18, 2020
Betty Joann Denton Varni, aged 80, a resident of 205 North Wedgewood Drive, Washington, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Tuesday August 18, 2020.
Graveside services will be open to the public and will be held at 11:00 am Saturday August 22, 2020 at Oakdale Cemetery in Washington and will be conducted by Pastor Darren Walker. Viewing hours will be private. The family will receive friends following the service and at the home on Thursday from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.
Betty is survived by her loving husband, Randolph H. Varni of 41 years; daughters, Kathleen Evans, Jennifer Varni, Terry Miller, Connie Cole, Janis McLaughlin, sisters, Tina Brown, Patty Mason, Brenda Hoover, Barbara Luckert, brothers, Gary Parris, Jerry Denton and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
"Joann" as she was referred to by many, was an amazing mother, grandmother and wife. She never met a stranger and her love and compassion for her fellow man made her unforgettable. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren adored her as she did them. After a long battle with cancer, she peacefully left her earthly body to rejoice with the Lord. Betty loved flowering plants as her husband regularly brought her clippings from their gardens for her to enjoy.
With her love for flowers, Betty would be thankful to have flowers given in her memory for the graveside service to be given in her memory.
