ALBIA — Betty Jean Kint, 82, of Albia, passed away Sept. 17, 2013, under the care of Monroe County Hospice at Monroe Care Center in Albia.

Betty was born Nov. 21, 1930, to William and Amanda (Miller) Edmondson in Topeka, Kan. She married Eldie Kint June 15, 1948, at the Methodist Church in Allerton. They shared nearly 57 years together before his passing on April 24, 2005.

She enjoyed square dancing, being outdoors camping, watching sprint car races in Knoxville and following Iowa Hawkeye basketball. She was a very good cook, especially when it came to fried chicken, and was a talented seamstress.

Betty is survived by her two children, Sherrie Caster of Albia and Randy (Marilynn) Kint of St. Charles; nine grandchildren, Kimberly Jones, Rene Fekete, Randall Todd Kint, Brandi Caster, Bryan Caster, Amanda Farrell, Tyler Kint, Kurtis Kint and Kayla Kint; 22 great-grandchildren, Davin, Megan, Nathan, Austin, Clay, Carson, Michael, Stephanie, Sadie, Randall Gregory, Haven, Justin, Andrew, Kaitlynn, Skyleigh, Starlynn, little Donnie, Chloe, Steven, Jacob, C.J. and Nicholas; a brother, Wayne (Maxine) Edmondson; two sisters-in-law, Ruby Kint and Lenora Marolf; and several nieces and nephews.
