Elizabeth "Bettye" Marie Sander, 91, of Indianapolis, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 15, 2011.

She was born in Evansville, Indiana on October 8, 1920 to the late Otto P. and Adeline L. (Schwerdtfeger) Roeder. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Arnold P. and Richard L. Roeder, and sister-in-law Betty Jean "BJ" (Clark) Roeder and one nephew. She is survived by her loving husband of sixty-three years, John D. Sander, one son, Mark D. Sander (Betty J. Hufford) of Indianapolis, one daughter, Carol (Sander) Martin of St. Louis, Missouri, sister-in-law Margie A. (Shahan) Roeder of Park Forest, Illinois, five nieces and nephews, and several great-nieces and great-nephews.

A graduate of Bosse High School in Evansville, Indiana in 1938, she dedicated the early years of her marriage to homemaking and raising her children. Later in life she fulfilled a dream by completing nursing school. She worked a short time at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville before relocating with her family to Indianapolis, where she worked eighteen years at Winona Memorial Hospital, retiring in 1985.

Bettye will always be remembered for her devotion to family, friends and church, love of life and faith in God, opening her heart and home to everyone.
