Betty J. Tilton

Betty J Tilton, 91 of East Liverpool, passed away on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at Continuing Health Care at the Ridge in Mineral Ridge, OH, where she had been a resident for a year and a half. 

Betty was born on August 9, 1929, in Chester, WV, the daughter of the late Jacob and Effie Howard Robinson.  She attended Chester High School and graduated with the Class of 1947.

Betty married Charles Tilton, Jr in 1951.  They had one son, David C. Tilton. Betty was preceded in death by Charles, her son David, and six brothers and five sisters.

Betty was an active member of Chester Church of the Nazarene and devoted much of her time there.  She was a Sunday school teacher, youth leader and taught Bible school.  She also looked forward to attending Camp Meetings every summer. She loved Gospel music and always had recordings of her favorite singers playing in her home.

Betty spent her life as a loving homemaker.  She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She was always full of life and laughter, with a wonderful sense of humor. She could often be found outdoors with her son and his cousins, playing badminton or ball, taking long walks, picking berries, or taking daytrips to fun places like the zoo, with frequent stops at the Dairy Queen. Quality time with family was always important to her. She lived and loved generously.

Betty is survived by her grandson, David C. Tilton Jr (Shannon) of Chester, WV and several nieces and nephews.

Her viewing will be held on Thursday, October 29, 2020 from 12PM-1PM in Calcutta at Care Funeral and Cremation Specialists- Martin Chapel (formerly Martin MacLean Altmeyer Funeral Home). Her memorial service will follow at 1PM with Pastor Tim Bess officiating.

    Betty always sat in the same pew at church. When we would sing It Will Be Worth It All, I knew to look back at Betty and knew the tears would be flowing. Her love of her family and friends, church , and above all her Savior. Loved her and look forward to the day I see her. Bless the memory of Betty to her family.
