Elizabeth J. Vandenbusch

December 9, 1935 — November 10, 2022

Elizabeth J. "Betty" VanDenBusch, age 86, of Green Bay, passed away peacefully, Thursday, November 10, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. She was born December 9, 1935 in Green Bay, the eldest of 10 children of the late Lawrence and Ella (Kiehl) Phillips.

Betty was a graduate of Green Bay East High School, Class of 1953. She married Francis "Fran" VanDenBusch, July 27, 1957. They were married for 65 years before Fran passed away just 8 days before Betty. She worked as a CNA in various health care facilities in the Green Bay area, eventually retiring from Brown County Mental Health after 20 years.

After retiring from her CNA work, she was able to care for her grandkids in her home. Her grandchildren were her whole life-they were so special to her. She was a talented gardener and enjoyed canning, sewing and wine making. Her children fondly remember their childhood camping trips and berry picking with their mom. Betty and Fran had many activities that they enjoyed together, including card playing and traveling the country with their family.

Betty is survived by her 6 children: John (Karen), Ellen Freward, Kathy (Mitch) Barrette, Brian (Toni), Cheryl McCandless and Andrew; 13 grandchildren: Josh (Sara), Jeremiah, Brandon, Tracie, Tyler, Jon Michael, Jacob, Nick, Greg, Katie, Kyle and Alex; 2 great-granddaughters, Ava and Adysin and a great-step-grandson, Archer.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Fran, daughter, Mary Theresa, a grandson, Christopher.

Visitation will be held at Newcomer-Green Bay Chapel (340 S. Monroe Ave., Green Bay, WI), Friday, November 18, 2022 from 11 AM to 1 PM. A funeral service will follow at 1 PM. Entombment will be in Shrine of the Good Shepherd Mausoleum.

Betty's family would like to extend their gratitude to Compassus Hospice for their care and compassion.
