Betty A. Mohr, 92


Betty Ann (Eipperle) Mohr of the rural Omaha, passed away at her home Sept. 27, 2022, on her 92nd birthday.
Betty was born, Sept. 27, 1930, on a farm in Millard to Fred and Helen (Vomacka) Eipperle. While in the fourth grade, her family moved to Ralston, then in 1948 they made a big move to Bennington when her father purchased Eipperhurst Dairy (now The Barn at Ackerhurst Dairy Farm) on the corner of State Street and Military Road. In her youth, Betty was active in 4-H, exhibiting Registered Holsteins. She met Lyle Mohr at the Ak-Sar-Ben 4-H Livestock Show. On April 25, 1953, Betty and Lyle were married. She was a dairy farmer who was strong in her faith and strong in her will.
Betty and Lyle purchased 40 acres from Lyle’s family, where they built their dairy farm, Mohrview Farm Inc, and raised their children, Tyler Mohr, Shawn Melotz, Beth Wakefield, and Tracy Behnken. Together with her family, Betty helped build a respected registered Holstein farm, exhibiting dairy cattle at local, regional, and national shows. Betty was actively milking cows, driving tractors, and working in the fields into her nineties.
Betty thought the world of her family. Birthdays, holidays, and impromptu get-togethers at the farm were always spent with her family.
Betty was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Lyle; parents; brothers Roy and Fritz Eipperle; and sister Jane Leece.
She is survived by children Tyler, Shawn, Beth (Troy), and Tracy (Craig); grandchildren Clay (Rachel) Wakefield, Grant Melotz, Madison Wakefield, Colt (Emily) Wakefield, Walker Behnken, and Carter Behnken; great-grandchildren Zoe and Cohen (Clay) Wakefield, and Eden (Colt) Wakefield; and brother James Eipperle of Marshalltown, Iowa.
