Elizabeth “Betty” Frye of Saint Charles, MO, passed away at the age of 88 on Saturday, January 11, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald Frye; her parents, William and Alberta Schneider; and her siblings, Ida Buerk, Jane Guittar, and Larry Schneider.

Betty is survived by her children, Janet "Jan" Butler, Michael (Deb) Frye, Deborah (Ron) Boedeker, Mark (Becky) Frye, Kathy (Chuck) Ervin, Sharon (Tim) Ritzel, Pam (Kevin) French, Donna (Joe) Rivet, and DeeDee (Randy) Henderson; her 70 grandchildren; her 38 great-grandchildren; her siblings, Wilma Mitchell and William Schneider; and she was a loving sister-in-law, aunt, cousin, friend, and like a mother to many others.

Betty was strong in her faith and active in many parts of her church, including the XYZ church group. She had the kind of friendly, welcoming personality that made it so Betty never knew a stranger no matter the place or time. Dancing was a great passion of Betty’s and she loved to go out and dance the jitterbug, ballroom dancing, swing dancing, and really anything that she could groove to. Flowers held a special place in Betty’s heart and she cultivated a garden of clematis, mandevilla, and many other beautiful flowers.  Her garden was always pretty enough to be on the cover of “Better Homes and Gardens” and make their yearly top ten list.

Memorial contributions in Betty’s name may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or to Celebrate Jesus of Haiti.

    Fred and I have bowled with Betty at Crest Bowl for many years. Last summer she and Jim bowled with us on our team.
    She was a sweet lady and always had a smile. Most days we bowled we always took time to talk and catch up with our family events and news.
    We were blessed to have a bowling friend like Betty. She will be missed by many.
    We are sending our prayers and condolences to all her family.
