Betty Jean Haupt Andreskowski
Born December 1, 1924. Died November 11, 2010.

Betty was born in St. Joseph, Missouri. Betty pronounced it St. Joe, Missourah, She was the adored only child of Alma and Victor Haupt.

Betty's father worked for the railroad, and they moved several times but eventually settled in Nebraska. Betty's Bachelor's degree was from the Municipal University of Omaha, which later became part of the University of Nebraska. Her Master's degree was from the University of Nebraska. Betty enjoyed sorority life and remained close friends with some of her sorority sisters until the day she died.

Betty went to work as a high school teacher and counselor, and still heard each year from a former student. Betty's great interest was in history, and she was a wealth of information. She had an amazing memory and was a wonderful story teller. Her knowledge of her family's history was an invaluable source to a relative who was comprising the family genealogy.

Betty did not go on blind dates, but a friend persuaded her to double date. So the foursome went to a rodeo, and that was Betty's first date with Theodore Franklin Andreskowski, better known as Andy. Andy worked for Wilson Meat Packing Company which had headquarters in Chicago. Wilson also had a very large cattle operation in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Andy was sent to Argentina to be one of the managers. He was not much for writing letters, and Betty heard little from him until he returned to the U. S. for a short visit. He proposed to Betty , and they were married on February 5, 1955, prior to Andy returning to Argentina. Betty then followed Andy in July, having had the chore of supervising packing and shipping of all their households goods and sailing on the S. S. DelMar.

Betty and Andy lived several years in Argentina, then in Chicago, and finally in Oklahoma City, all locations where Andy worked for Wilson. Betty did substitute teaching on occasion, but primarily tended their home. They lived for over forty years on Windsor Terrace and enjoyed a close-knit neighborhood. Memorials may be made to Hospice of Oklahoma County.
