Elizabeth "Betty" Jean Scholl, 71, passed away peacefully early Saturday morning, September 14, 2019 at her home. She was born on May 25, 1948 in New Berlin, NY, daughter of the late Harold and Leona (LeFleur) Sergent. She grew up in Poolville and graduated from Earlville High School.

On May 28, 1976, she was married to Louis Scholl, sharing 43 years of marriage together. Betty worked a variety of jobs, beginning with Continental Telephone in Norwich for several years before staying at home with her youngest daughter for a time. She then worked at Unadilla Elementary as a library media specialist; in the kitchen at Mead; sold real estate for Rose Realty and Exit Realty, and decorated cakes for Walmart bakery.

A talented crafter, Betty's hands were always busy. She especially enjoyed knitting and quilting and could often be found at local fairs selling her craft items. She also enjoyed baking, fishing and riding horse, and in her younger years, she liked to trap shoot and garden.

She will be missed by: her husband, Louis Scholl; children: Desdamona Latza (Scott), Eric Scholl (Linda) and Jenny Scholl (Stephen); grandchildren: Nicole Burke (Brian), Kristen Nelson, Amber Latza (Ronnie), Joseph Latza (Georgianna), Daniel Scholl, Lucas Scholl and Shealynn Bendt; great-grandchildren, McKenna Nelson and Gavin Burke; brother, David Sergent (Sandy); sister, Sharon Raymond (Kevin); brother-in-law, Roger Galler; as well as several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
