Betsy Lapham, age 80 of Middleville, passed away peacefully at Green Acres in Wayland on April 2, 2021. Betsy was born on October 10, 1940 in Lawrence, MI to Ralph and Celena (Carpenter) Anderson. Betsy married the love of her life, Paul E. Lapham, on December 2, 1978, and together they shared 43 wonderful years. She spent most of her time as a homemaker. In her spare time, she enjoyed being outdoors cultivating and caring for her flowers. Betsy and Paul worked side by side in the yard and garden and she was known to can the fruits of their labor. Betsy discovered her passion for quilting and was an avid quilter for many years. She created several works of art that she gifted to family and friends, never using a machine to complete her creations. Each piece was sewn lovingly by hand. Most important to Betsy was her family, and she especially loved spending time with her grandchildren. Betsy is survived by her loving husband, Paul; children: Robert (Valerie) Flynn, Patricia (James) Naru, Jennifer (husband-like-person, Todd Rule) Flynn, Leigh (James) Trine, Kelvin (Rita) Lapham, Kris Lapham, Kathy (Dominic) Hossler, Kirk (Julie) Lapham; 12 grandchildren; six great grandchildren; siblings: David Anderson, Judith Anderson, Martha Borek, Donna Anderson; several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Steve Anderson. Services are being planned for later this summer. Burial will take place in Hooker Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made for the benefit of Interim Hospice to the A. Raymond Kalliel Hospice Foundation, 1971 E. Beltline NE., Ste. 219, Grand Rapids, MI 49525.

Darlene Smith Loth will forever treasure every precious memory of a childhood shared with her beloved friend Betsy ~~ their days at the Corning country school, getting their names in the Wayland Globe after camping out in their yards on summer nights and their days at Middleville high school where Betsy graduated in 1957 and Darlene in 1959.

It was a friendship that continued all of their lives and Darlene will forever be grateful to have spent the last week with Betsy and the family.

She will continue to uphold Paul and the family in her prayers and thoughts with love
