Betty Elliot, 79, of Glencoe

Betty Marie Elliot

Betty Marie Elliot, age 79, of Glencoe and formerly of Renville, passed away Friday, Jan. 17.
A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, Jan. 23, 11 a.m., with visitation starting at 10 a.m. at Christ Lutheran Church, 1820 Knight Ave in Glencoe. Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery in Renville.
Betty Marie Elliot was born Oct. 30, 1940, in Eau Claire, Wis. to Warren Guy Brant, Sr. and Minnie Josephine (Thompson) Brant. Betty’s parents were deaf so American Sign Language was her first language and was all that was spoken in her childhood home. Betty went to stay with her grandmother before she started school so she could work on her speech. Betty was an amazing caretaker for her parents and an advocate for the hearing impaired.
Mrs. Elliot lived the majority of her life in Renville. She was baptized and confirmed at First Lutheran Church, Renville. She graduated from Renville High School in 1958. Betty met John Elliot while working at Warner Manufacturing in Sacred Heart. John was the love of her life and they were married Aug. 6, 1960, at First Lutheran Church. Together they had three children, Jodi, Paul and Juli.
Mrs. Elliot worked as the deputy clerk of Court in Renville County and then worked as a secretary at Renville High School where she retired in 1997. She was a registered interpreter for the deaf and worked in legal and educational settings. Mrs. Elliot was an assistant director for high school and community theater, assistant speech coach and she helped coach the FFA parliamentary procedure team. She was active in church teaching Sunday school, directing dramas, singing in the choir and serving as deacon. Mrs. Elliot enjoyed quilting, creating many beautiful treasures for her family to enjoy. She loved roller-skating, dancing, playing softball, crocheting, shopping and spending time with family and friends. We will miss the way she always made us laugh and told us how much we were loved.
Mrs. Elliot was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease Oct. 12, 2010, and fought with determination, humor and grace. In 2013, she moved to Grand Meadows Senior Living and in June 2019, Mrs. Elliot moved to the memory care unit at GlenFields Living with Care in Glencoe.
Betty left this earthly life and entered glorious eternity with her savior surrounded by her loving family.
Left to cherish her memory include her children, Jodi (Jon) Braband of Glencoe, Paul (Doreen) Elliot of Cary, N.C. and Juli (Mike) Standfuss of Northfield; seven grandchildren, Joy (Brent) Macheel of Mankato, Josh Braband of Eden Prairie, Brant (Katie) Elliot of Raleigh, N.C., Brandon (Sara) Elliot of Raleigh, N.C. and Brock (fiancee Brooke) of Raleigh, N.C., Abby (significant other Jake) Standfuss of Farmington and Alexa Standfuss of Northfield; great- granddaughters, Clara Elliot, Aurelia Macheel and a great- granddaughter due in March. She is also survived by sisters-in-law, Joyce Wolff of Hector, Marlys Haug of Sacred Heart, Evelyn Elliot of Sacred Heart; brother-in–law and sister-in-law, Arch and Donna Elliot of Lakeville and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Mrs. Elliot was preceded in death by her loving husband of 50 years, John, in 2010. She was also preceded in death by her parents; and her brother, Warren G. Brant, Jr.; cousin who was more like a sister, Arlene Wangen; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Delores Brant, Ray and Mary Olafson, Delwood Wolff, Mornall Elliot, Orion Haug; nephews, Tom Olafson and Les Wolff.
