Betty Marx

Betty’s family found Cross in the 1920s through their neighbor, Eleanor Koepke, who taught Sunday school. Everyone was so nice, they stayed. Betty, born in 1926, was baptized at Cross. As the neighborhood changed, Cross briefly planned to move to 92nd Street, upsetting many; some left. Eventually Cross sold the land to Luther Manor. In the 50s, amid changes in the church, her mother tried churches closer to home. None measured up; they did not feel comfortable or welcome. Pastor Joe was called, some feared his reputation and what that would mean; again some left. Betty loved her Sunday School children and their families, and saw this as no reason to leave. Others left over the move away from using just the Green Hymnal and of course the RIC issues. She felt the same about the new LGBT members as she did back in the 50s. Betty says, “What difference does it make? Everyone is nice and friendly."
