Betty was born April 15, 1920, in Brainerd, to the late Emil and Mabel (Anderson) Zimbrick. At the age of four years old her family moved to a farm in Freedhem. She attended country school in Freedhem and later attended high school in Little Falls. After graduation Betty went to work at Midway Hospital in St. Paul for five years. In 1943, she moved to Yuba City, Calif. to be with her future husband while he was stationed in California in the service. Betty was united in marriage to Carl R. Setterstrom, May 1, 1943, at the Baptist Church in Marysville, Calif. The couple later relocated to Texas for a short while, and when Carl went overseas Betty returned home to Freedhem. Betty worked for many years at St. Gabriel’s Hospital as an LPN and eventually retired from there in 1982. In 1988 Betty relocated to Little Falls and she became an active volunteer at St. Gabriel’s Hospital and St. Otto’s. She was a very active member at Grace Covenant Church in Little Falls, where she participated in as many church activities as possible. Betty was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
