Betty Jane Mohr, 70, of Sparta passed into the gates of heaven on Sept. 8, 2014, surrounded by her loving family at Gundersen Health Systems, La Crosse.
Betty was born June 2, 1944 to Harold and Marcella Mulligan and grew up in the Beaver Dam area. Betty graduated in 1962 from Beaver Dam High School. She married Raymond Mohr December 12, 1964 at St. Stephen’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam. The two were happily married for almost 50 years.
