Obituary for Bette M. Ramert

BETTE MARLENE RAMERT was born February 5, 1934, to Chris and Crystal (Lund) Cornelson in Lake Benton, Minnesota. She was baptized at the Presbyterian Church in Le Mars, Iowa. She grew up on a farm near Lake Benton and at age eleven the family moved to Tyler, Minnesota. She graduated from Tyler High School in 1951. She was united in marriage to Gary Lehmann on December 24, 1951, at the Lake Benton United Methodist Church Parsonage. Their union was blessed with three daughters, Dyann, Renae, and Donna. The couple lived in Tyler until 1953, when they moved to Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. In 1957, Bette returned to Tyler and was employed at Swift Company in Marshall, Sid and Min’s Café in Pipestone, and the Chat N’ Chew in Tyler. In 1964, she met Dwayne Ramert in Pipestone and they were married on March 29, 1965. In 1967, the couple moved to Le Mars, Iowa and Bette worked as a bookkeeper at Don’s Bookkeeping and Wiltgen Construction. She retired in 1998 and they moved to a home on Lake Benton. Dwayne died July 22, 2009, and shortly after, Bette moved to the Lake Benton Valley Manor. On Wednesday, June 3, 2020, Bette died peacefully at the Sunrise Manor in Tyler, Minnesota at the age of 86 years, three months, and 29 days.
