Betty attended Holy Cross grade school and graduated from Kaukauna High School in 1952.

A devoted mother, wife, aunt, and friend; she was kind and generous. She was an avid reader and particularly loved music as she was a gifted singer. Her greatest joy was her family. An excellent cook, a homemade meal was always waiting for her family though she worked full time. Candy making, baking and canning are cherished memories. 

She is survived by her three children Beth M. Lueck of Chicago IL, Tony L. Lueck [David J. Martinelli] of Chicago IL, Jeffrey C. Lueck of Madison,WI and many nieces and nephews. 

The family wishes to extend a thank you to the numerous health care providers who gave her such loving and quality care at Heartland Hospice. Thank you to all of the nieces, nephews and friends who sent cards, called and visited over the years. Card games and laughter at Eagle River with the Luecks’ was a favorite.
