In Memoriam: Betty Mueller, community organizer
Long-time Edmonds resident Betty Mueller peacefully passed away in her sleep in bed at her home on Caspers Street in the early morning hours of Dec. 4, 2013, at the age of 91.
Betty was active for many years as a community organizer and spokesperson for public opinion. She was widely known and well-loved by many Edmonds residents and current and former city employees. Many will miss her example of good sense and fearlessness.
She was born Betty Joyce Richards in Rolla, Missouri, the town known as “the middle of everywhere,” on June 25, 1922. There she married Dr. James Mueller and moved to Seattle in 1948 and to Edmonds in 1950, where she lived until her death. Her son James predeceased her; she is survived by her three children, Betsy, John and Mike and seven grandchildren.
Friends may make memorial gifts to the Carol Rowe Memorial Food Bank at the Edmonds United Methodist Church, 828 Caspers St., Edmonds 98020; 425-778-5883, firstname.lastname@example.org.
