  • Betty Ruth Perkins (Peterson) Nothnagel, passed away peacefully with her daughter Judy at her side, March 17, 2021. Betty was born on Sept 29, 1925 to Jennie Annie Larsen and Ammon Moroni Perkins. She enjoyed spending time with her sisters, Maiza and Arlene, growing up in the Holladay area. She started writing George Clarence Peterson as a pen pal while he was serving in the Navy during WWII. They married Sept 12, 1946. They were blessed with 3 children, Catherine, Jeffrey George and Judy Lynn. In 1960 George was killed in a tragic plane crash. She later had the marriage solemnized in the SL Temple. Betty later married June Oscar Nothnagel on May 22, 1966. Together they enjoyed traveling and motor homing. She loved going to Hawaii and visiting many of the National Parks. Betty loved to spend time with family and you could never go to her home without her offering you a meal or knowing her candy jar was waiting for you. Everyone that came into contact with Betty became an immediate friend. She was welcoming and loving.

    Betty would be there to help her family out whenever they needed her, whether it was to be a listening ear or to attend every dance concert, school activity, primary program or just sit and hold a baby. Betty was very active up to the age of 92. She enjoyed gardening, working in her home, and going to the temple weekly, always at 5:45 am. She made delicious cinnamon rolls and Sunday dinners always consisted of a delicious roast and mashed potatoes. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her greatest joy.

    Betty is survived by her daughter Judy (Dennis)Toone and 9 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.

    She is preceded in death by George (1960), June (2007), son Jeff (1994), daughter Cathy (2009), grandson Danny Toone (2011) and great granddaughter Aria Hill (2019).

    Services will be held Wednesday, March 24th at 11:00 am at 275 E 10600 So. Friends may call prior to the service from 10:00-10:45. Interment at the Salt Lake Cemetery.

    We would like to give thanks to the staff at the Wentworth in Draper and Tender Care Hospice, especially Ashley who showed great love to our beloved mother and grandma.
