Bettie A (White) McCunn passed away Friday, August 30, 2019, at The Village in Indianola, Iowa. Bettie was born August 21, 1928, at Stennett, Iowa, the daughter of Roswell Leonard "Jim" and Laura (Rush) White.
Bettie graduated from Red Oak High School in 1946. Bettie was united in marriage to Lowell McCunn on October 26, 1952, at the Stratton United Methodist Church north of Red Oak, Iowa. To this union three children were born: Barbara Ann, Vicki Lynn and Alan Lowell.
Bettie loved her family and the Iowa State Cyclones. She always had a huge smile on her face and loved talking to everyone. She enjoyed working with Lowell in their John Deere and hardware businesses in Greenfield. She volunteered at church, the Greenfield Chamber of Commerce, and wherever she was needed by her family, friends and community. She consistently attended every family get together to laugh and enjoy each other. She attended every Iowa State Cyclones football game that she could; arriving early to see the band and staying to the end of the game (winning or not winning, cold or wet). She brought joy to the lives of everyone who knew her. She will be missed by all who saw her smile.
