Obituary for Elizabeth J. "Betty" Gilliland

Elizabeth J. “Betty” Gilliland, 94, of Fostoria, passed away on Wednesday May 1, 2019 at Good Shepherd Home, Fostoria.

She was born October 13, 1924 in Frenchtown to the late Richard and Anna (Calmes) Tiell. She married John F. Gilliland January 31, 1948 at St. Wendelin Catholic Church and he died August 1, 2009.

Surviving are seven children, Mary Ann (Terry) Ford, Fostoria, Sue (Chuck) Lowery, Bloomdale, John (Gina) Gilliland, Fostoria, Donna (Dave) Collins, New Riegel, Roger (Sue) Gilliland, Williamsport, PA, Ralph Gilliland, Fostoria and James Gilliland, Fostoria; 16 grandchildren; 29 great grandchildren; four great-great grandchildren; and a sister, Donna Sikora, Tiffin. She was also preceded in death by seven brothers and sisters, Larry Tiell, Paul Tiell, Mary Lou Betz, Pat Haughn, Carl Tiell, John Tiell and Norma Scheer.

Betty was a homemaker and member of St. Wendelin Catholic Church. She had been a member of the Fostoria American Legion Auxiliary. She will be remembered as an excellent cook and baker. She enjoyed bingo, playing cards, gardening and casino trips. But most of all she loved her family and especially spending time with her grandchildren, taking them on outings and to the fairs. Betty will be dearly missed but we are comforted that she is in the hands of the Lord.

The family would like to give special thanks to the staff of Bridge Hospice and the Cascades unit of Good Shepherd Home for their loving and compassionate care of our mother.

Visitation is Sunday May 5, 2019 from 2-5 pm at HOENING & SON FUNERAL HOME 133 W. Tiffin St., Fostoria, OH 44830.

Mass of Christian Burial is 10:30 am Monday at St. Wendelin Catholic Church with Rev. Todd Dominique presiding, with a Rosary prayed at 10 am at the church. Burial will follow in Knollcrest Cemetery with a funeral luncheon then served in St. Wendelin Parish Hall.

Memorials are suggested to Bridge Hospice or Cascade’s activity fund of Good Shepherd Home.
