Betty Lu Baird, 90, of Findlay, Ohio passed away at 8 am on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at Birchaven Village, in Findlay.
She was born in Wayne County, Iowa on December 29, 1927 to the late Charles H. Calif and Opal Hammond. On October 13, 1949 she married William Lee Baird, and he preceded her in death on December 25, 1985.
She is survived by one daughter, Sue A. Taylor (Jack Volkmer), of Findlay; three grandchildren, Chris (Sherry) Baird, Tina (Blair) Lane, and Lora Le (Ted) Bergfeld; seven great-grandchildren, Jackson, Jillian, Griffin, Keegan, Tommy, Liam, and Kason; and two sisters, Etta Irene (Delmar) Enright and Judy (Ernest) Nickols. She was also preceded in death by her son, Thomas L. Baird and one sister, Elaine (Merval) McKee.

Betty was a member of the Norcrest Presbyterian Church in Findlay.
