Betty J. Gleason
May 25, 1938 ‒ July 09, 2019
Betty Jane Gleason, age 81, peacefully passed away Jul 9, 2019, in her Mansfield home.
She was born May 25, 1938, to parents Roy & Rachel (DeBoard) Lawson in Westerville. Betty was graduated from Gambier High School. She married James Gleason and they spent many wonderful years together until he passed away in 1990. Betty worked at General Industries in Bellville for a time, but her full-time job was to be a loving homemaker for her family.
Betty had a deep love for classic country music, her absolute favorite was George Jones and she got to see him in concert in 1995. In spare time, she enjoyed watching television and some of her favorite shows included Judge Judy, Forensic Files, and of course Lifetime Original Movies. She also enjoyed solving crossword puzzles and was very much a dog person. Betty had a giving spirit and loved taking others to eat out at local restaurants. According to her grandkids, she had “no filter” and she always spoke her mind. Betty was protective of her family and dearly loved them all.
She is survived by her daughter Kristine (Michael) Volz whom she called “Cis” of Mansfield; grandchildren Cameron (Haley) Vance whom she called “Punkin,” and Laken Vance (fiancé Tim Metcalfe) whom she called “Lakeypoo,” and Nathan Volz all of Mansfield; brothers Leedy (Marilyn) Lawson of Utica, and Tommy (Cathy) Lawson of Rochester, NY; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her loving husband and parents, she was preceded in death by a son Chris Gleason who passed away in 1985 at the age of 17 and a brother Danny Lawson.
Although no public service will be held in Betty’s memory, her family hopes that you will hold her in your heart as you remember her in your own special way.
