Betty (Johnson) Csorosz, 92, went to heaven on July 27, 2019, at Providence Saint Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Montana.

Funeral services were conducted on Saturday, August 17, 2019, in Coffelt’s Funeral Chapel. Burial followed in Pinecrest Memorial Park.

Betty was born on April 7, 1927, in Sandpoint, Idaho to Arvid and Rose Johnson. She was raised on the family farm with five brothers and one sister, and attended local schools. Upon completing her college degree in education at Lewiston, Idaho, and Cheney, Washington, she taught elementary school. She met her future husband, an Air Force pilot from Maine, at Malm-strom AFB in Great Falls, Montana.

Betty and “Phil” were married on June 30, 1951, and then traveled worldwide and raised a family. They lived in England, Germany, Japan, Virginia and Oklahoma, finally retiring in Missoula. Betty was very active and totally dedicated to nature. She enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle of Montana and was an avid wildlife watcher. Hiking the mountains and countryside with her special group of friends was her favorite pastime. During her final days she requested thanks and appreciation be given to the members of her hiking group and to her neighbors for their companionship and support.

Family members include her husband, Lt.Col Felix Csorosz, USAF(Ret), daughter Kristine Csorosz and son Paul Csorosz of Missoula; son-in-law David Payne and daughter Carolyn (Csorosz) Payne of Bountiful, Utah; granddaughter Julianna Payne, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and grandson James Payne, Bountiful, Utah.

The family wants to thank our many friends in the Sandpoint area for their love and support. For the friends unable to make the service, we hold you in our thoughts and prayers.

A local remembrance for Betty will be held in Missoula at a later date. As quoted from an unknown author, “Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again”.

Family and friends are encouraged to sign Betty’s online guestbook at coffeltfuneral.com.

Local funeral arrangements were conducted by Coffelt Funeral Service.
