Nov. 22, 1921 – July 4, 2011

Betty Jean (Hagen) Berry was born Nov. 22, 1921, in Morocco, Ind., to Vernon P. Hagen and Ethel R. (Bennett) Hagen, where she lived for her first seven years before moving to Pennsylvania and spending her formative years with her three siblings. In 1942, Betty and a girlfriend moved to Oregon where she met her future husband, Ellis O. Berry, who was serving in the U.S. Army. They were married in 1944 in San Francisco, where later they had two daughters.

After his tour in the Army, Ellis and Betty moved to Monterey because of his career with the California Department of Fish and Game. While living in Monterey, Betty had the pleasure of appearing as an extra in Glenn Ford’s 1951 movie, “Follow The Sun; the Ben Hogen Story,” filmed at the Pebble Beach Golf Course. This experience encouraged her lifelong love of golf.

Betty and Ellis were able to continue their love and enjoyment of golf by purchasing a home in the El Macero Country Club community. She was active for many years with the 9- and 18-hole ladies groups. Betty and Ellis had the memorable opportunity of playing golf at the St. Andrews course in Scotland during their retirement.

While married, they were able to travel to all 50 states and many countries in Europe. Betty also was an avid bridge player with several local groups and was a past docent of the California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento. She passed away on July 4, 2011, after a brief illness.

She is survived by her daughters, Rebecca L. Berry of Independence, Ore., and Lynn B. (Randy) Rowe of Madera; her grandchildren, John E. Hance (Trish), David G. Hance, Dr. Sandra L. B. Rowe (Darin Frederick), and Lucas R. Rowe (Kimberly); her five great-grandchildren; and her sister Laura Mae Linenger.

The family would like to express their sincere and grateful appreciation to Yolo Hospice, especially Ann Jackson, R.N. No services will be held, at Betty’s request. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Yolo Hospice or Shriners Children’s Hospital in Sacramento.
