Betty Stahl Park, 93, of Trenton, KY, passed away at her home on March 3, 2022, surrounded by her family.
Betty was born on December 28, 1928 to Chester and Mary Frances Stahl and was a lifelong resident of Todd County. She was a graduate of Austin Peay State University with a bachelor’s degree in Library Science and a master’s degree in Elementary Education.
