The Mass of Christian Burial for Betty will be 10:30 am Wednesday, April 10, 2024, at Church of the Resurrection with Father Phil Gibbs as the Celebrant. Burial will be in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Key West.

Elizabeth was born July 15, 1931, in Dubuque, IA, the daughter of Wilfred J. and Marie C. Palm Noel. On September 11, 1954, she married Thomas E. Christ in Dubuque, Iowa. He passed away January 18, 2011.

Betty attended St. Columbkille School from kindergarten through high school.

She worked for Northwestern Bell and Brown Publishing Company, yet her most important and cherished role was that of a homemaker.

Betty was a member of Church of the Resurrection, the Koffee Kup Bowling League, and the Tri-State Twirlers Square & Round Dance Clubs. She enjoyed camping and visiting with neighbors, but above all, she loved spending time with her family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. As a devoted wife and mother, she showed love and care in all aspects of her life. She was known for her exceptional pie baking skills and had a weakness for ice cream. Additionally, Betty’s affection for animals, especially dogs, was evident in her compassionate nature.

Survivors include her four children, Steven T. (Martha) Christ, Sandy (John) Davis, and Diane (Chris) Sloman, all of Dubuque, and Mike (Tina) Christ of Dixon, IL; nine grandchildren, Jamie (Pat) Clancy, Jill (Corey) Leach,  Amy (Jason) Kempen, Catie (Craig Christofferson) Davis, T.J. (Molly) Davis, Kimmy (Jared) Irish, Bobby (Jenna Kruser) Sloman, Jennifer Burghardt, and Andrew (Julia) Christ; 11 great-grandchildren; one brother, Richard (Char) Noel of Dubuque; and one sister, Carolyn Hewitt of Dubuque.

Besides her husband, she was preceded in death by one sister, Mary Spielman, and one sister-in-law, Mary Ann Noel.

In lieu of flowers, memorials have been established for Dubuque County Humane Society and University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Her family expresses their gratitude to Hospice of Dubuque and to Drs. Whalen and Hermann for their attentive care of Betty.

Hoffmann Schneider & Kitchen Funeral Home and Crematory is in care of the arrangements.
