Betty Jean Eaton, 88, of Billings, moved to her heavenly home with her family at her side on March 9, 2019. Betty was born to Elizabeth and Leonard Yost on July 6, 1930. After graduating from Sweet Grass County High, she married William 'Bill' Eaton and they celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary in November.

Betty and Bill moved to Billings, where Bill joined his father-in-law Leonard to start Eaton and Yost Construction, and later Pella Windows & Doors, which are both still going strong today under the leadership of their sons. Betty served as the bookkeeper. Betty put family first, always. She was an outstanding cook, an impeccable homemaker and a lifelong hard worker, passing those values on to her kids and grandkids.

Surviving Betty is her beloved husband, Bill; their children, Donnie (Ed) Sexton, Sheldon (Vicki), Larry (Connie) and Rod (Sandi); 15 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and two on the way! Preceding Betty in death were her parents; sister Marilyn and grandson Ryan.
