Betty Pulse, 95, of Platte, SD passed away Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at Platte Care Center Avera. Memorial Services are 10:30 A.M. Saturday, May 1, 2021 at Mount Funeral Home in Platte. Visitation will be held from 9:00 – 10:00 A.M. at the funeral home on Saturday. A Committal Service at Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Torrey Lake Township, Kimball, SD will follow lunch with the family.

Betty Jeanne (Moore) Pulse was born to Gladys Stattler Edmisten on September 16, 1925 and was adopted at birth by her aunt, Henry and Rua Stattler Moore of Mitchell, SD. Her childhood was spent at their home on Lake Mitchell, which led to her enjoyment of water sports, camping and fishing. In her late teens she committed her life to the Lord. This commitment remained her primary focus throughout her life.

She married Robert W. Pulse of Platte on November 16, 1946 and moved to his farm north of Platte where they lived until 2012 when they moved to Countryside Assisted Living in Mitchell. Bob died in 2014. Betty remained at Countryside until moving to Platte Care Center in 2017 due to failing health.

Betty worked as a bookkeeper for Home Furniture Company in Mitchell before her marriage, which prepared her for keeping detailed records for the farm and Bob’s Registered Angus herd. She also was a bookkeeper at Tri-County State Bank in Kimball for several years. Betty enjoyed listening to classical music, reading, and playing Scrabble.

Betty and Bob enjoyed traveling later in life and took trips to Hawaii, Mexico, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica. They loved to tell about their many adventures. Their life was rich and full in many ways.

Survivors are: her daughter, Marianne (Bob) Houkom of Iowa City, IA, sons: Daniel (Linda) of Hill City, SD and Philip (Nancy) of Bloomington, MN. She is also survived by Bill’s former wife, Kathy of Sioux Falls, SD; 10 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; and 6 great-great grandchildren. Other survivors include: nieces, nephews, close friends, Vickie and Dan Dykes of Chamberlain, and many of her non-denominational Christian fellowship ministers and friends.

Betty was preceded in death by: her parents; her sisters: Helen Reed and Margaret Wittstruck; and her half-brother, Clayton Edmisten. Her husband, Robert (Bob); her firstborn son, William (Bill) of Kimball; and granddaughter, Jennifer (Philip’s daughter); and two great-grandsons: Cole and Jacob (Scot’s sons) also preceded her.

Memorials may be sent to: Platte Care Center Avera, PO Box 200, Platte, SD 57369 in her memory. The family deeply appreciates the exceptional care she received there.

The attached picture was our last visit with Betty - July of 2020 on the way to Rose Hartland's funeral. Betty true to her character interrupted our visit to remind us we best get back on the road otherwise we will be late for the funeral. Valued over the years that mark of hers: helping us to "Be in time"!
