Mrs. Elizabeth A. Koch from Ferndale, PA passed peacefully on Saturday August 6, 2022 at home surrounded by her loving family.

“Betty” was the beloved wife of the late Mark H Koch who died September 2020.  The daughter of the late Joseph and Anna (Frick) Fleck and was born at the Fleck Dairy Farm, Ottsville, PA and was the youngest of 8 children.

Betty graduated from Nockamixon High School in 1948 and attended Churchman Business College, Easton, PA. She was a secretary for Good Brothers car dealership Ottsville, PA and also worked on the family dairy farm.
 
Her life was a love story, when at a church fundraiser, Mark asked Betty to be his partner in the cakewalk.  They celebrated 67 married years.  Betty especially loved Christmas and being surrounded by her large extended family.  She was guided by and lived her faith.  Betty was a lifetime member of St. John the Baptist church and sang in the choir.  She enjoyed cooking, caning, polka and square dancing, attending her grandchildren’s sporting events and her loyal dog Jackie.  Betty was a friend to everyone she met and there was always room for one more at her dining table.
