Betty was born on May 11, 1926 in Beach, at the Johnstone Memorial Hospital, a daughter of William and Clara (Anderson) Hollar, joining two half-brothers, Harold and Fritz Hollar, and one half-sister, Marie Trester. She attended school in Beach all the way up to the twelfth grade, missing graduation by three months so she could marry Glen Lohmann, who was soon to be deployed to battle in World War II.
After the war ended, Betty and Glen made their home on a ranch north of Beach where she was a homemaker for thirty-two years until Glen unexpectedly passed away in 1975. Eventually Betty married Ray Horn, and they lived in Alaska and then Bigfork, Montana where the brief marriage ended in a divorce. Betty continued to live in Bigfork where she became an accomplished china painter and gardener.
Betty was President of the Bigfork Garden Club, a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Bigfork, and also very active in the Senior Citizenís Center in Bigfork.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Glen Lohmann; one half-sister, Marie; two half-brothers, Harold and Fritz; and brother-in-law Bud Lohman.
