Bettie A. Koenig, 67, of Toledo, OH, passed away after a six-year battle with cancer on Monday, February 1, 2021 at her home with her husband by her side. She was born in 1953 in Toledo, OH to Alfred and Betty (Webber) Carr, Jr.
Bettie was a 1971 graduate of Bowsher High School. After high school she started at the University of Toledo to be a nurse but then found a passion and expertise in bookkeeping. She had her own business, Independence Bookkeeping, which she ran from her home for over 30 years. This allowed her to be home with her children and later to watch her granddaughters. Bettie and Bob were very active in the Bowsher Band Boosters for 9 years while their children attended high school there and were foster parents for six years. Bob and Bettie volunteered as Stranahan ushers for 15 years. Bettie also enjoyed volunteering for hospice, mobile meal deliveries, and had finished her training to be a CASA advocate for children. Bettie loved to go on cruises with Bob and for the past seven years, they loved to vacation at Lake Santeetlah in North Carolina.
Bettie is survived by her loving husband of 35 years, Robert; children, Stefanie (Jeff) Mabrey and Benjamin Jachimiak; grandchildren, Hannah and Lauren; sister, Micci (Dave) Hoffer; brother, David (Luu) Carr; stepfather, Howard Harrod and uncle, Tom (Pat) Webber. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Alfred Carr III.
Due to covid-19, a gathering and memorial service will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, a memorial gift may be considered to the Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center or ProMedica Hospice in Bettie’s name. On-line condolences may be left at reebfuneralhome.com
