Obituary for Betty J. Fabian

Betty J.  Fabian
Betty J. Fabian, 90, of Everett, most recently of Huntersville, North Carolina, was called home to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 20th, 2018 with her family at her side.

She was born Tuesday, September 27, 1927, in Everett, a daughter of the late Erastus Mearkle Karns and Annabelle (Hall) Karns.

On July 12th, 1951 she married John “Johnny” Fabian who passed away on January 18th, 1984.

She is survived by their children,
Jean (Fabian) Carbaugh and husband Andy Carbaugh of McConnellsburg,
John Fabian, Jr. and wife Melanie (Harclerode) Fabian of Harrisburg, North Carolina
Jane Fabian of Everett,
Joann Droz and husband Jim Droz of Everett,
Janice (Fabian) Bowers of Concord, North Carolina,
Judy Fabian of Duncansville,
Jerry Fabian and wife Maribel Fabian of Everett,
Jeffrey Fabian and wife Sara Fabian of Huntersville, North Carolina,
Joyce (Fabian) McFarland and husband John J. McFarland, III of Everett,
Jay Fabian and wife Sherry (Smith) Fabian of Charlotte, North Carolina

Nineteen grandchildren; Joey May, Josh May, Caleb May, Kimberly Smith, Derek Mills, Andrew Mills, Morgan Fabian, Taylor Bowers, John McFarland IV, Spencer Nichols, Caitlyn Collins, McKenzie Smith, Kyle Droz, Marcus McFarland, Brianne McFarland, Anthony Fabian, Belle Fabian, Brady Fabian, Jerelle Fabian,

Eight great-grandchildren, a brother Arden Karns and wife Belva of Everett, a brother in law, Frank Fabian and wife Bernice, of Bethlehem; her faithful companion Jack Russell Terrier “Blue” and many loving cousins, nieces, nephews and their families.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in passing away by her granddaughter Whitney Appleby; a sister Ardene Bilinsky and four brothers and their wives: Paul and Helen Karns, Burl and Gilda Karns, John "Babe" Karns, and Thomas "Nick" and Edith Karns.

Betty was a graduate of Everett High School, Class of 1945. After graduation, she worked as a waitress at Drenning’s 24-Hour Diner and Service Station in Everett where she met the love of her life and husband to be, Johnny.

After their marriage, Betty was a dedicated homemaker and wonderful mother who always put her children first. She knew that a moment lost with her children was everlastingly, or in her words, “The dirt will still be there tomorrow” and that “children didn’t ask to be born” so it was her responsibility as Mom to guide and support them.

Many afternoons you could drive past the Fabians home and see Betty outside pitching to her “own” little league team or see her walking to and from town with the little ones in tow. When her long time neighbors and friends, John and Hon Hinish’s son Brad was born, Betty welcomed him as one of her own and he too became part of the family gang.

As the children grew and after-school activities began, Betty made sure the kids were able to participate and attend in afterschool events. They were her pride and joy.

She also enjoyed vegetable gardening and canning, and was often found in the kitchen cooking, making delicious homemade bread and teaching her children how to cook too.

Spending her final years vacationing, and then living with her family in North Carolina, she had a great time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and will be remembered for the love and knowledge of life she shared with her family.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, January 25th, 2018 at 11:00 am in the Chapel at Dalla Valle Funeral Service, Main Street, Everett with Rev. Curtis Bryant officiating.

Family and friends may call at the funeral home on Wednesday from 4:00 to 8:00 pm, on Thursday from 10:00 am until the hour of service and share memories online at
