Betty was born in San Antonio, Texas to William H. and Alma Emma Marie (Warncke) Boelter. Betty was a joyful person full of love and laughter and a magnet for friends. She was also very generous with her time. For years she was a volunteer with the hospital auxiliary and served two years as president.

She was an active member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority Laureate Chapter in Seguin. Betty enjoyed being with friends and belonged to a number of “Lunch Bunches”.  

Betty met the love of her life Clarence Vetter at a dance and their lifetime adventure began. Their love for travel took them to many places including Europe, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, many Caribbean Islands and places all over the states. Clarence would tell Betty on these trips that if they ever got separated, she should just laugh and he would find her.

Betty was a graduate of Seguin High School and received a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Southwest Texas State University. She became the first elementary school counselor in the Seguin Independent School District and retired from teaching after a 30 year career.
