It is with great sadness we share the passing of Betty Jean (Mize) Castle at The Middleton in Granville, Ohio on September 16, 2019. Betty was preceded in death by her husband of seventy years, Gerald Eugene Castle; her parents, James and Jane Newell Mize; beloved siblings, Josephine, Wallace, William and Ernest. She was born on May 26, 1930, in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is survived by daughters, Deborah (Sam) Waltz, Rebecca (Henry) West; four grandchildren, Sara (Tom) Mench, Adam (Amy Liu) Waltz, Natalie (Jeremy) Nicodemus and Ashley (Nick) West; three great grandchildren, West Lee Nicodemus, Porter Gene West (born on Gene’s birthday in 2017) and Evelyn Yiwei Waltz; and many cherished nieces and nephews. Betty loved being a homemaker and dedicated her life of unwavering love and devotion to all of her family. She was at her happiest when feeding family and friends by hosting meals in her beautiful country kitchen “on the farm."
