Betty E. Carlson, 97, passed away Monday, July 9, 2018, at home in Libertyville, IL, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born January 23, 1921, in McKeesport, PA, was a former resident of Chesterton IN, and has been living in Grayslake since 2003. Betty was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Chesterton, IN, where she taught Sunday school for many years. Betty had a passion for working with children and this carried on after her move to Grayslake. The time she spent working with children for 10 plus years at Prairie View was one of the greatest joys of her life. For her 90th birthday the school celebrated with a parade in her honor. Her other greatest joy was her family. Betty loved nothing more than spending time with her family. She will be forever remembered for her positivity and beautiful smile.

She is survived by her daughter, Ellen (Thomas) Majewski, of Libertyville, and by her three grandchildren, Greg, Matt, and Claire.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Carlson in 1992.

A celebration of life service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, July 21, 2018, at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 29700 N. St. Mary’s Rd., Libertyville, IL, 60048. Arrangements by Burnett-Dane Funeral Home in Libertyville.
