Dorothy Elizabeth Fetterman Lechner Moesle

“Betsy” was the eleventh child and youngest daughter of Jennie Toleatha Ressler and Charles Oscar Fetterman, a farmer from Locust Township, Columbia County, PA. She was listed as Elly D. in 1930 census. By 1940, Betsy had left home and followed her older brothers out to Canton Township, Stark County, Ohio, where she lived with her older brother and his family. It was there that she met Carl D. Lechner, son of Florence Colvin and William Lechner of Canton, Stark County, OH. They married around 1942, and two children were born of this marriage. After the death of her husband in 1966, she remarried for a second time. She and her husband moved in the late 60's to Scottsdale, AZ, where her children later followed. Except for a short time working in a nursing home in Scottsdale, Betsy was a wife and homemaker throughout her life.
