Elizabeth Breitbach was born February 13, 1934 in Elrosa, Minnesota to Mathias and Mathilda (Koll) Breitbach. In 1954, she married Julian Schloegl and together had seven children. They later divorced and on May 18, 1974, she married Dennis Froh at Trinity Lutheran Church in Long Prairie. They lived in Long Prairie until 1982 at which time they moved to Sauk Centre.

Betty was a hard worker and worked many jobs throughout her life including Title Atlas and MN Distillers while in Long Prairie and St. Michael’s Hospital and First State Bank, as a custodian, while in Sauk Centre. She was an excellent cook and loved preparing meals and baking for her family and they hosted many gatherings at half-time of the high school football games that took place behind their home. She also enjoyed trips to the casino and playing Bingo. She loved her Catholic faith and had quite the collection of rosaries which were prayed daily!

Betty was a member of the Christian Mothers and her and Dennis also served as sacristans. She loved her family and friends unconditionally and many times selflessly put their needs before her own! She will be greatly missed!

Survivors include her husband, Dennis Froh of 49 years; seven children, Pat (Mike) Firkus of Sauk Centre, Veronica “Roni” Kasper of Halstad, John (Nancy) Schloegl of Sauk Centre, Jim Schloegl of Melrose, Tom (Lisa) Schloegl of Blaine, Deb (Ronnie) Moritz of Sauk Centre, and Carla (Steve) Brunn of Sauk Centre; 12 grandchildren, Joe, Josh, Tami, Brandi, Cole, Randy, Mark, Jayla, Madison, Matthew, Alex, and Marcus; sisters, MaryAnn Hoeschen of Litchfield and Marlene Bromen of Cincinnati, Ohio; and brother, Matt (Alice) Breitbach of Sauk Centre.

Betty’s family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff of Fairway Pines and CentraCare Hospice for their wonderful care of their mom.
