Betty Deloris Rohrer
June 25, 1925 - Nov. 6, 2017

Betty Deloris Rohrer, age 92, of Sheridan, passed away Monday evening, Nov. 6, 2017 at Maple Park Village in Westfield.

Born July 25, 1925, in Clinton County, she was the daughter of the late Albert F. and Ethel I. (Proffit) Terhune.

She was a 1943 graduate of Sugar Creek High School. For many years, she worked as a teller at both the Farmers State Bank of Clinton County in Scircleville and the American State Bank in Sheridan. Always eager to learn, she taught herself bookkeeping and accounting. She put her education to work, keeping the books and running payroll for Childers Construction in Sheridan. She loved sewing and gardening, but her true passion was cooking. She would collect cookbooks from anywhere and everywhere, along with any special recipes she would come across that looked like they might be fun to try. She was a lifelong member of the Hills Baptist Church, where she served as Bible School teacher, Superintendent and secretary in her younger years. Later in life, she attended Sheridan First United Methodist Church. She was also a member of the Utah Home Ec. Club of Marion Township, the Theta Alpha Alpha chapter of Phi Beta Psi National Sorority in Sheridan, Progress Club, and a member of the Boone County Farm Bureau board. Betty was also a Girl Scout leader for many years, guiding girls through the woods at Hawthorn Trails.

Family was a very important part of her Life. A true farm wife, she assisted her late husband with the farm responsibilities, as well as assisting him as clerk for Marion Township during his 24 years as township trustee, all while at the same time raising a wonderful family. Being part of the family however, meant helping with her unwavering love of decorating for the Christmas Season. As her family expanded, her grandchildren became her world. She loved watching them grow up and being a part of their activities; especially when it came to 4-H.

Survivors include her 2 daughters, Sharyle D. Burwell (Joey), and Renea N. Scott (Tony), both of Sheridan; 4 grandchildren, Shalyn A. Burwell, Shiloh N. Scott, Taylor C. Scott and Acacia T. Scott; and 1 great grandson, Brendon M. Burwell.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her older brother, William Terhune, who's plane was shot down during a bombing mission near France during WW II; grandson, Joshua M. Burwell; and by the love of her life and husband of 62 years, Charles William Rohrer on Nov. 13, 2011. She and Charles were married at Hills Baptist Church on Sept. 17, 1949.

Services are scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, 2017, at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 E. 10th St., Sheridan, with visitation scheduled from 11 a.m. until the time of service. Burial will follow at Whiteman Cemetery in Michigantown. Pastor Charles Cole will be officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be presented to the Hills Baptist Church, 4296 S. County Road 1380 E., Kirklin, IN 46050.
