In loving memory of Betty Lou Mains Kram.
Betty was born on August 26, 1931 in Onamia, Minnesota to Peter and Margaret Mains. She was one of 12 children. Betty graduated from Onamia in 1949. On October 28, 1950 she married Edward William Kram in Onamia. The young couple then moved to Superior, Wisconsin, where a year later, Betty became a mom to the first of her 9 children. On January 1, 1970, the family moved to Cambridge where she lived until her passing. Betty was an avid reader of mainly romance novels, but she could not find the written story that compared to her almost 60 year romance with Ed. Betty loved her family and was always able to lend a hand when it was needed, a laugh to brighten a day, advice and love.
