Betty Jane Barbour, age 96 formerly of Plymouth, passed away on January 25, 2020. She was born in Plymouth, Michigan on July 30, 1923 to the late Harry and Myrtie Brown. She was the loving Aunt to nieces Kaye Horsfall, Linda (Bernd) Freiny, and nephew Rick (Sue) Gotts. Betty is survived by many great and great-great nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her late husbands Fred Korte Jr, John Pint and Robert Barbour and by her sister Annabell Gotts.

Betty graduated from Plymouth High School in the class of 1941. The majority of her employment was at National Bank of Detroit in Plymouth where she started as a bookkeeper and was promoted to several different positions. In 1968 she was moved to the Ann Arbor Harvey Office as Assistant Branch Manager and was promoted to Branch Manager and Banking Officer before she retired in 1985.

Betty was very dedicated to the community of Plymouth.
