Bettie Delores Kline


Bettie Redmond Kline, 94, of Hagerstown, died April 3 while under hospice care at Doey’s House, Hagerstown. Born Jan. 1, 1929 – the first baby born in Washington County that year -- she was the daughter of the late Viola M. Davis Burger & Wilbur L. Keefauver, Sr.

Bettie spent her life making sure no one went hungry. While working at Potomac Heights Elementary School, she served school lunches with a motherly approach, and was known for her generous portions. As both an employee and volunteer at the Washington County Hospital snack bar, she fed starving doctors, nurses and visitors, always with a mix of feistiness and playful banter. At home, she worked her stove overtime, preparing down-home country dishes for family, friends, neighbors -- and most every dog she came across.

Bettie was a charter member of Maranatha Brethren Church in Hagerstown.

She is survived by her sister, Marie Hicks of Hagerstown; daughters Jacqueline M. Snively Taylor, of Hagerstown, Victoria L. Redmond Britner, of Hagerstown, and Judy A. Kline Hendry, of Richardson, Tex.; and sons Michael W. Redmond, of Hagerstown, and Jerry L. Kline, of Gambrills, Md. She also is survived by nine grandchildren, four great grandchildren and many beloved nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Bettie was preceded in death by her husband, Ursa L. Kline; sister Fran K. Hoover; and brothers Wilbur L. Keefauver, Jr., Roy A. Keefauver, Sr., and David L. Keefauver.

The family will receive friends from 6-8pm on Friday, April 14, 2023, at Rest Haven Funeral Home, 1601 Pennsylvania Avenue, Hagerstown. The funeral service will be held at 10am on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at Rest Haven Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Rest Haven Cemetery.
