Bette A. (Chisholm) Frost “Mimi”

Bette A. (Chisholm) Frost “Mimi”, 96, was granted her angel wings on December 31, 2020.  She was given  the gift of life, and now she must return it,  This is very difficult for her family, but she was a loving, caring woman, who led a wonderful existence, and for this we are grateful.  “Mimi” was so proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  She loved hearing about their lives and activities.  She will be missed by all.

Bette was born October 25, 1924 in Brownwood, Texas, daughter of Dorothy and Clay B. Chisholm.  She moved to Mount Vernon, Illinois in her early twenties where she met and married J Kenneth Frost, who preceded her in death in 1999.

A Graveside Service will be held Tuesday, January 5, 2021 at 1:00 pm at Mount Vernon Memorial Gardens in Woodlawn, Illinois with the Very Reverend Bill Howard officiating. Interment will follow. Memorials may be made in Bette ‘s honor to Trinity Episcopal Church.
