Betty Scheinost Hagedorn was born on August 8th, 1947 in Lynch, Nebraska, daughter of Ladimer and Hildred Scheinost and sister to Bob, Eddie, Ron, Frank, Terry, Donny, Barb, Marie and Arlene.  She grew up in Spencer, Nebraska and graduated from Spencer High School before moving to Omaha.  Betty married John Hagedorn on August 22, 1970 and had three daughters: Michele, Stacy, and Tracy.  She was a grandmother to eight: Gabriel, Cecilia, Lydia, Sophia, Joshua, Noah, Leo, Oliver and a soon to be baby girl.  Betty spent most of her working career at First Data and retired in 2013.  She spent countless fall Saturdays in Lincoln rooting on the Huskers and enjoying time with family and friends.  Betty enjoyed traveling the country and across the pond to England.  She liked spending time with friends in the Red Hat Society and the Betty Club.  She was tireless in her service to others as a volunteer at Mary Our Queen Church helping with fish fries, the annual garage sale, and the Knights of Columbus.  Betty also gave her time to the Holland Performing Arts Center and Orpheum Theatre, and was active with the neighborhood Citizen’s Patrol.  Her sewing talents were regularly shared with the Children’s Hospital of Illinois and Stockings for Soldiers, and her baking talents were shared with the sisters of Notre Dame and their kolache fund raiser.  Betty was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend to all.  She will be dearly missed and fondly remembered for the footprint she left on this earth.
