(1931-1989) Betty Myers Sieverding would not have taken time to see herself as a heroine. She was so busy being a wife, a mother, a nurse, a farmer, a church leader, and a community leader, to stop and define how she might fit the word heroine.

Betty Sieverding was married to Anthony Sieverding for almost thirty four years and together they farmed 160 acres near LaMotte. Iowa. There Betty and Tony raised their five daughters and three sons with values as rich as the soil. Betty Myers had worked her way through college to earn her degree in nursing. Higher education was important to her and she saw to it that all eight of her children earned college degrees (three of them at Iowa State University).

Betty Myers Sieverding was admired for her strength, her faith, and her commitment to her family. She was emulated and honored by co-workers, members of her church, her community and most significantly, she was loved and honored by her husband, her children, and her grandchildren; she was their heroine.
