Betty Lou Newbanks

March 18, 1928 — June 10, 2022

Betty L. Newbanks (Baker), age 94, died June 10, 2022 peacefully in her sleep at Methodist Hospital. Betty was born March 18, 1928 in Omaha, Nebraska to Omer and Bessie Baker.

Betty and Harold bought the neighborhood bar, Harold’s Bar, in 1969 where they developed many friendships. Betty’s family and friends will miss her quick wit and words of wisdom but are all comforted in knowing she lived a wonderful life of 94 years and she was ready to be reunited with her husband in heaven.
