Elizabeth J. "Betty" Benz, nee Linker, 91, of Valmeyer, IL, died February 9, 2023, in Waterloo, IL. She was born October 4, 1931, in St. Louis, MO.

    Betty was a former member of Sisters of Mercy Convent - St. Mary's Hospital in Clayton, MO, where she was an administrator and she worked for the Federal Government before retiring. Betty loved music, dancing and played the trumpet. Her friends, especially at Oak Hill, knew that Betty could sing all the songs knowing every word by heart. Her smile was a message to everyone that she loved life and wanted to share it.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to: 
Oak Hill

At Elizabeth's request she donated her body to St. Louis University School of Medicine.
