All Betty's Children™
All Betty's Children is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization founded in honor of Betty Evans and dedicated to Comforting Families Confronting Cancer
Betty (Ramsey) Evans was born in Tecumseh, Nebraska on April 1, 1944. She graduated from Tecumseh High School in 1962 and married Dr. Ted Evans, Jr. To this union, seven children were born. Betty and Ted were married for more than 49 years and raised their children until her battle with cancer ended on April 12, 2011.
Ask people that lived in Betty’s presence and they will tell you that Betty didn’t raise seven children. In fact, many of them will say that we are all Betty’s children. Through her kindness, caring manner, comforting demeanor, and genuine love for all God’s children, Betty was a true matriarch. She treated others with respect and dignity, always attempting to live true to her faith. Betty exuded grace and selflessness in her daily life. Notice the words used to describe Betty: these are not terms to be penned lightly.
Betty dedicated her life to mothering. Not just to her biological children, but all people that had the pleasure of knowing her. Betty didn’t “take on” her nurturing role; she lived it. She nurtured all Betty’s children through the examples she set and the expectations she demanded. Betty courageously fought cancer for the better part of five years. There were peaks and valleys during this time, mentally and physically. During this battle, Betty never broke. She never withered. In fact, her nurturing ways seemed to grow as the battle continued. Betty understood that this was her cross to bear, no matter the end result. Her grace, faith, and nurturing manner never left her, and are still present today through those of us that knew her.
We started All Betty’s Children, a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to “Comforting Families Confronting Cancer”, to spread the compassion and teachings of Betty (Ramsey) Evans. All Betty’s Children will do this by providing care, comfort, and support through emotional, financial, and other means to families confronting cancer during their time of need.
