Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ B. Kendall-Browne


On Aug. 12, 2020, Elizabeth (Betsy) B. Kendall-Browne — loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, teacher and friend — transitioned to her heavenly home peacefully at the age of 81, wrapped in her only daughter’s loving arms and in the company of two caring nurses, Ashlee and Rosalie, at North Big Horn Hospital, where Betsy had been receiving treatment under the caring, watchful eyes of Dr. Troy Caldwell.

Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 22, 2020, at Cody Bible Church, 2137 Cougar Avenue, in Cody, with burial and dedication services graveside at Riverside Cemetery in Cody. A sack lunch will be provided at Cody Bible Church immediately following the graveside service.
