Betty Fetzer

July 23, 1944 — January 1, 2022

Betty Fetzer, 77, of Langdon, ND, went home to heaven January 1, 2022. She was a patient at CHI Health in Lisbon, ND for the past several months. She was cared for by amazing staff and continued to love people and form relationships even from her hospital bed. Her body is now at rest, but her soul is free and joined with Jesus as well as all her loved ones gone on ahead.
Betty Jean Stalker was born July 23, 1944, in Langdon, ND, to Richard and Zelpha (Irwin) Stalker. She grew up and attended school in Langdon, graduating in 1962 from Langdon High School. She continued her education at Wahpeton State School of Science and earned a one-year business degree. While at college, Betty went on her one and only blind date and met the man of her dreams. On July 10, 1965, Betty and Ronald Fetzer were united in marriage. They lived for a short time in Turtle Lake, ND, before moving back to Langdon. Betty worked at PCA and delivered flowers for Langdon Floral, but her interest in caring for people of all ages led her to spend most of her working years as a caregiver. She ran a home day care, worked at Maple Manor Care Center, and was a house parent at the shelter for domestic violence in Grafton, ND for many years. Betty enjoyed cross-stitching, knitting dishcloths, making yarn-covered hangers, reading, tending to her flowers and watching/feeding the birds. She especially loved hosting coffee time where she visited with friends and enjoyed conversations with anyone and everyone who would stop by. She always had an open door and unconditional love to give. Betty’s favorite role in life was being a Nana, and according to her grandkids, she was “the best Nana in the world”. Betty’s faith in Jesus was a priority in her life, and she was very involved in her church, Emmanuel Evangelical, in Langdon.
Surviving Betty are her three daughters: Shelby Fetzer of Lisbon, ND, Heidi (Todd) Morgan of Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, and Lindsey Mehlhoff of Lisbon, ND; her “son”, Laurence (Kelly) Fernandez, and their children of Oakbank, Manitoba; her beloved grandchildren: Rylie (Alex), Eyan, Claire, Broderick, and Leo; great-grandson Axel; siblings: Kristy (Ken) Forest of Langdon, ND, and Robert (Billie) Stalker of Lemoyne, NE; step-children: Natalie, A.J. and Harlan; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Ron, sister Jan Stalker, and her dear cousin, Jim Baird.
A celebration of life service for Betty will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, January 7, 2022, at Emmanuel Evangelical Church in Langdon. Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with a 7:00 p.m. prayer service on Thursday, January 6, 2022, at the church. Burial will be in the spring at Lebanon Cemetery in Langdon.
