Obituary of Bettylou Siematkowski


Mishawaka, IN – Formerly of Liberty & Pine Island, NY

Bettylou Siematkowski, age 68, passed away unexpectedly at her home in Mishawaka on January 7, 2020.  Betty was born August 29, 1951 in Liberty, New York to the late Robert and Violet (Atkins) Lyons. 

Following graduation from Liberty High School in 1969, Betty enrolled in Delhi University and later transferred to (SUNY) Cortland where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Physical Education. Betty married her husband Walter A. Siematkowski of Pine Island, New York on March 8, 1980 in Liberty, New York.


Betty was a hard-working self-employed insurance agent for several years prior to opening her appraisal company, BLLS Appraisal Services 23 years ago.  In her spare time, she enjoyed playing cards, throwing darts in tournaments and leagues, playing golf, and was an avid hunter and fisherman.  She also was a longtime member of the Women of the Moose, Chapter 098 of Mishawaka, Indiana.

Most of all, the love for her husband was like no other. She loved her children and grandchildren immensely. Her memory will live on in their hearts forever.

Walter survives, along with their children Jessica Penny and Walter A. (Meredith) Siematkowski, both of Mishawaka.  Also surviving are six grandchildren: Cameron and Kathryn Whitfield and Patrick, Theodore, Emma and Charlotte Siematkowski.  Betty is also survived by her siblings Barbara (Bill) Hans of South Carolina, Pamela (Scott) Potter and Robert (Andrea) Lyons, both of New York.  Surviving as well are numerous nieces and nephews and several great-nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents.
