ownbey 06Betty Ann Ownbey, 82, a resident of Emmett, Idaho entered eternal rest Sunday, July 7, 2019 in Idaho. She was born December 5, 1936 in Sayre, OK to Ira Mosley and Phoebe Marshall Hubbard. Mom and Dad lived in Silver City most of their lives. They were married and raised their kids here. They spent their happiest years here with the many friends who they consider family, and even though Mom spent the last two years of her life in Idaho, her heart never left Silver. In the end, one of her greatest desires was to be laid to rest here, and so Dad brought her back. Mom loved you all so much, and I know you felt the same. And so we grieve...but not as those who have no hope.  We will see her again.
