Mary Elizabeth “Betty” Towers, age 96, passed away peacefully September 3, 2021. She was born August 7, 1925 in Marion, Iowa to Laura and Lester Peck. She married Charles “Mac” Towers on December 28, 1946. Betty and Mac enjoyed many wonderful years of marriage and raised six children together. Mac preceded her in death in 1996.

Betty loved people. She had many friends and a family who adored her. She was a kind and loving person and a wonderful mother. She attended Iowa State University following graduation from High School. Betty worked in a variety of jobs in her early days, including a railroad secretary, switchboard operator, and assisting her husband with his Veterinary business by working at the desk or answering calls. Betty’s greatest love and priority was her family. She was a lifelong Christian, spectacular homemaker, wonderful cook, and the absolute best mom in the world. She will be greatly missed. 

Betty is survived by her six children Jim, Mark, Greg Charles, David, Jon, and Janet. Also, two brothers, Bob and Bill Peck survive. Her brother, Jerry, preceded her in death as well as her parents Lester and Laura Peck. Betty also has many grandchildren and great- grandchildren. 

The family is requesting memorials be sent to a charity of personal choice.

Blessed be her memory. A celebration of her life will follow at a later date.
