Osgood business owner dies

The Osgood community lost a familiar face Saturday, February 12, 2016.  Elizabeth “Betty” Katharyn McGlone passed away at Manderley Health Care in Osgood with her family by her side. Betty was born on May 17, 1923 in Sciotoville, Ohio, the daughter of the late John L. and Luella (Kinnamon) Rhodes.

Pictured left is Betty McGlone of Osgood.

Early in her career in the late 1950’s, Betty worked at U.S. Shoe in Vanceburg, Ky. This employment led her to an unexpected change.  Betty was asked to move to Osgood and help with the local U.S. Shoe. Out of this move, the community was able to get a business jewel.  Betty worked and also started the long-time business known as “Betty’s Shop.”  When the store was started in 1963, she was involved in every aspect of the retail women’s clothing store. Later, it included tuxedo rentals. It would be fair to say if you have ever worn a tuxedo in Osgood, Betty was probably involved.  The store was sold earlier this year by Betty’s daughter, Priscilla Sutton. 
Many people ventured through the doors over the years and were always met with great conversation. She appreciated her patrons. Whether they were there for a tan or tuxedo, she wanted to make sure they had the best experience possible.  Betty was quick to remember a face, and everyone was always her friend.

Betty was past president of the Business and Professional Women Club of Ripley County, a past member of Entre Nous Club, and a member of the Osgood United Methodist Church.  She enjoyed painting and the works of local artists in the Ripley County area.
She is survived by daughter Priscilla Sutton of Osgood, five grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by son Louis Bennington; brothers Benjamin, Robert and Owen Rhodes, and sister Eloise Ellis.  She was also preceded in death by one granddaughter Kellie Turnbow.

Visitation will be Tuesday, February 16, from 5-7 p.m. at Neal’s Funeral Home, Osgood, followed by a funeral service at 7 p.m. also at the funeral home.  A short service and burial will take place 1 p.m. Wednesday, February 17, at Wheelersburg Memorial Burial Park in Wheelersburg, Ohio. Memorials may be made out to the Osgood United Methodist Church in care of the funeral home.
