Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Ruby Woodbury, by her husband Vern, and by a son, Hjalmar Krinke. Mom leaves a big family including 19 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Our beloved mother was a devout Christian and a lifelong teacher who taught her family to love the Lord.

She was a lifelong supporter of a number of Christian churches and schools. Mom was fiercely independent, hard-working and thrifty and managed to create the circumstances for herself to depart this life in exactly the way she chose. The family wishes to thank physicians and staff at Saint Mark’s Hospital ICU and other units, and are especially grateful to the home health care, and home nursing services and hospice services for their superior care and compassion for our mom. Funeral arrangements by Goff Mortuary, 8090 South State, Midvale, Utah. Condolences and tributes online at In lieu of flowers please donate in Mom’s name to your church’s charitable works fund.
