Obituary: Elizabeth A. “Betty” Wyant

Elizabeth A. “Betty” Wyant, 63 of Shoshone died Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at her home.

Betty owned and operated the Manhattan Café in Shoshone for 37 years and married to George, the other love of her life, for 42 years. She was known to be fierce in business and gracious in life. She enjoyed telling people what to do, how to do it, and it usually needed to be done right now. She was selfless – always thinking of others before herself and generous with what she had to spare. She loved to travel, was competitive in games, and enjoyed live performances. She was dedicated to her family and transitioned from us far too soon.

Betty is survived by her husband, George Wyant of Shoshone, two sons, Adam and Chelsey Wyant of Boise and Kevin and his fiancé, Lynn Gould of Jerome. Her mother, Annette Buckendorf of Boulder, Colorado, brothers, Bill and Madelyn Buckendorf of Caldwell, Barry and Mary Buckendorf of Salt Lake City, UT, Ben and Paula Buckendorf of Boise, Bart and Ronda Buckendorf of Nampa, a sister-in-law, Jolene Buckendorf of Meridian.

Betty is preceded in death by her father and one brother, Bob.
