Elizabeth Rose â€śBettyâ€ť (Zaversnik) (Vosahlo) Jacobs was born on Sept. 12, 1924, in Rock Springs, Wy., to Joseph and Mari Zaversnik. She passed away on Sept. 23, 2013, in Newport at the age of 89.
Betty and her family moved from Rock Springs to the Elk-Camden area when she was in her early teens. She met and married Joe Vosahlo at a young age and they had four children, Don Vosahlo (Connie), Phyllis Sage (Gary), Arlene Casselman (Derris) and Jack Vosahlo.
Beside being a wife and mother, she was an avid painter and gardener. She loved the outdoors, doing jigsaw puzzles and reading.
Daniel Ira Johnson (Danny) was born on Nov. 7, 1951, to Ira William and Noreen Louise Johnson, their third of five children. Danny grew up on a dairy farm in Williams Valley west of Deer Park.
His Christian parents raised him to become the Godly man that we all loved so much. Since the family never owned a TV, after a long day of chores, they played games, and read the Bible together. As an adult, without fail, year in and year out, every morning with his bowl of Wheaties cereal, you would find Dan reading his well-worn Bible, seeking and soaking up the Word of God.
