Betty L. Baughman

May 31, 1931 ~ June 27, 2019 (age 88)

Betty L. Baughman, 88, of Wooster, died peacefully on June 27, 2019, surrounded by her family.

Betty was born on May 31, 1931 in Massillon to Emma Haring.

She attended Manchester High School where she met the love of her life, Cecil Baughman. Both enjoyed attending their class reunions. They were married for 57 years before his passing.  Betty was a devoted farm wife. She worked at Nabisco in Seville. While holding this job, she pursued a realtor license, and was subsequently trained by Gerspacher Reality. This led to a rewarding career in the field, where her emphasis was always on ethics in real estate. A favorite hobby was canning, and she received awards at the county fair due to her talented cooking skills. There was always room for another person at Betty’s table. She also enjoyed swimming, traveling, watching sporting events at all levels, (especially her grandchildren’s), and attending church. She was a faithful member of Lodi United Methodist Church, where she enjoyed worshiping with her family.

Betty will be deeply missed by her children Ronald (Debbie) Baughman of Wadsworth, Gary (Karen) Baughman of Redondo Beach, CA, Patti (Mark) Ritchey of Wooster, Dennis Baughman of Lodi, James (Kathy) Baughman of Lodi; 12 grandchildren, three step-grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren and nine step great grandchildren, and a step great-great grandson; Elizabeth Boyer, who was like a sister; sisters-in-law Debbie and Marty Haring; new-found relative Nancy Bishop; nieces, nephews, and cousins.  She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Cecil, daughter-in-law Jane Baughman; brothers George and Jim Haring; and special cousins and friends.
