She was born and raised in Vernal, Utah. She is the 7th of 8 children born to John and Ruth Powell. On June 3, 1953 she married Jack D Sheffer and was later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. Betty held several positions within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Betty was a homemaker. She was devoted to her Husband and 4 children.
She took every opportunity to teach her children the gospel and her life was one of selfless service. She was very compassionate, never spoke ill of anyone. She will always be remembered for her great faith. She turned to the Lord in prayer with full confidence that those prayers were heard and answered.
