Betty Jo (Fey) Kerns, 64 of Utica, died on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at home. She was born on November 11, 1955 to Francis and Della (Roland) Fey.
She grew up on a small grain and dairy farm in South Dakota. Betty met Jerry at Harmony Homes in Aberdeen SD. and were married in 1982. They spent most their lives in Aberdeen before moving to Utica in 2014 seeking more help for Betty. Betty loved taking care of her home, knitting, playing the piano, and singing at church. The night before Betty passed, she woke and called the nighttime caregiver saying “I want to go home I just saw my dad.”
