Elizabeth “Betty” Mae Sapp

Elizabeth “Betty” Mae (Fuemmeler) Sapp was born April 30, 1951, in Moberly, MO to Vernon and Mary (Prentzler) Fuemmeler.  She married Steven Dale Sapp of Ashland, MO on May 23, 1970 at St. Mary’s Parish, Glasgow, MO.  She passed from this earth January 23, 2023, at home with family.

Betty was well known for her love, commitment and devotion to family.  Also, an amazing friend and advocate to all she encountered. A welcoming, non-judgmental being. Her acceptance and strong desire to serve others, consistently showed throughout her life.  Her overwhelming, fierce desire to treat everyone equally always trumped.

She made people feel accepted and supported no matter their circumstance and/or life choices, always forgiving and trusting God in everything.

Her last request, was for us all to get along, be kind and take care of each other.

Betty graduated from St. Joseph Catholic High School, in Salisbury, MO in 1969.  She was employed by Columbia Auto Parts, Boone County National Bank, Simms Realty, In-home daycare, Columbia Catholic School, Gerbes, University of Missouri Hospital Accounting (retired 2022), and HyVee. Part-time book-keeping (her true joy) was with many businesses.
