Betty Ann Herrmann

November 9, 1931 — May 1, 2023

Betty Ann (Evans) Herrmann, 91, formerly of Kincaid and Moran, Kansas, passed away May 1, 2023, at Country Place Senior Living in Chanute, Kansas. 


Betty was born November 9, 1931, in Bush City, Kansas the daughter of Clarence and Besse (Cavender) Evans. She attended Willow Branch School through 8th grade then Kincaid High School, graduating in 1948. Betty earned a teaching degree from Kansas State Teachers College of Pittsburg and taught one semester at Lone Elm School. 


She met the love of her life, Lawrence Herrmann, on the school bus in 1945 and they were married on October 20, 1950. Betty and Lawrence lived in and around the Selma/Kincaid area most of their lives before moving to Moran in 2005. The life of a farmer's wife kept her very busy with taking meals to the field during harvests, running to town for machine parts, raising and dressing chickens, gardening, and sewing clothes for her children. Betty still found time for various clubs and activities being a charter member of the Kincaid Advancers Club, enjoying being part of a bowling team, serving on the school board, working for a short time as a nurse's aide, and plenty of fishing. Betty was always active in the Kincaid Methodist Church, including UMW, and making hundreds of gallons of chicken and noodles for dinners and fundraisers. She was on-site many days during the construction of the current church building.


Betty is survived by daughters Sheryl Bussell of Chanute, Diana Brannon of Maricopa, Arizona, Peggy Lundine of Humboldt, and son Jim (Linda) Herrmann, of Greensboro, North Carolina. She has been blessed with 10 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren.


Betty was preceded in death by her parents, husband in 2014, son, Larry, in 1984, one sister, and 5 brothers.
