January 16, 1939 - January 13, 2022
Betty Lou Eichman, daughter of David R. and Frances (Eikenberry) Metzger, was born January 16, 1939, near Pratt, Kansas. She died January 13, 2022, three days before her 83rd birthday. During her early years, the family would spend winters in Whittier, California. She lived two winters in Florida during her teen years, where she made many friends. She felt the need for Jesus in her life and was baptized in 1953 by Elder Alva Turner and placed her membership with the Old German Baptist Brethren and later aligned with Old German Baptist Brethren New Conference. She met a young man, Delphus Eichman, and they fell in love and were married on September 15, 1956 by Alpha Davison. They shared the joys of this union for 63 years and were blessed with six children, 17 grandchildren, and 38 great grandchildren. She took a job which she thoroughly enjoyed at a local hospital as a Certified Nurse Assistant. She would leave for work at bedtime and come home of a morning before the school bus arrived. She enjoyed sewing for her family, made many cabbage patch dolls, crocheted afghans, still finding time to garden and preserve food for the winter.

Metzger and wife Gladys; parents-in-law, Chester and Emma Eichman; step-mother-in-law, Ruth Eichman; three brothers-in-law, Chester Wagoner, Ira Eichman, and Leslie Eichman; and nephew, Gerald Eichman.
