Mrs. Elizabeth Ann “Betty” Gabelsberger, age 79 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at Jefferson City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Elizabeth was born on February 20, 1942 in Jefferson City, Mo., the daughter of Walter Ralph and Dolly Mae (Richardson) Walker. She was married on June 16, 1969 in Miami, Oklahoma to Harold August Gabelsberger who survives at the home.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Betty was a 1960 graduate of Jefferson City High School.

Betty was employed with the Missouri Division of Tourism alongside her father where she started out working as a Photo Lab Tech. Once her father retired, Betty was promoted to Photographer.

A woman of faith, Betty held membership with the Liberty Road Baptist Church in Taos, Mo. where she volunteered in many areas serving as church treasurer, secretary and helped coordinate and run bible school. She was always willing to help those in need in any way she could. Betty was a talented musician, able to play the flute, piccolo, organ and piano. She was blessed to share her gift of music with the church for over 50 years.

Betty was a feisty woman with a giving heart. She was helpful, kind and witty. She was a woman who didn’t seem to have an “off” switch as she was always doing something and held a continuous go getter's attitude. She worked hard and gave her all to anything she was trying to accomplish. She loved to travel and see new things and was passionate about exploring the world and experiencing nature. Betty was an eclectic collector of Precious Moments figurines, a large variety of salt and pepper shakers and unique rocks she found in various places. She flexed her creativity through cross stitch, crochet, wedding photography and painting scenery and wildlife. Above all, Betty cherished her family and relished every moment spent with her grandchildren.

Survivors include: her loving husband, Harold; one daughter, Beverly Connor (husband, Robert) of Jefferson City, Mo; one son, Richard Gabelsberger (wife, Michelle) of Taos, Mo.; and three grandchildren, Rosalia Conner, Annabella Connor, and Emmit Gabelsberger.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Marilyn Burnnett; one grandson, Alexander Connor; three brothers-in-law, Bill Burnnett, Lee Gabelsberger, and Robert Dudenhoeffer; one sister-in-law, Marge Gabelsberger; mother-in-law, Marie Gabelsberger-Hausmann; and two fathers-in-law, August Gabelsberger and Joe Hausmann.

Visitation will be held at Freeman Mortuary from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Friday, May 21, 2021.

Memorial service will be conducted at 6:00 p.m. Friday, May 21, 2021 in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend Kim Smith officiating.

A webcast of the funeral service will begin at 5:45 p.m. for friends that are not able to attend by going to her memorial page on Freeman Mortuary’s website.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.
