Betty Shonka Lepic died in Des Moines, Iowa on May 28 at the age of 93. Betty was a long-time resident of Iowa City, graduating from Iowa City High School in 1944. She worked at First National Bank in Iowa City for 31 years, retiring in 1988 as Vice President and Trust Officer.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. The family will greet friends at 12:00 until 1:00 p.m. downstairs in the fellowship hall, where a light lunch and refreshments will be served.

Betty was very active in professional and community organizations. She was Chairman of the SE Iowa Group of the National Association of Banking Women and President of her chapter of the American Business Women’s Association. A dedicated volunteer, Betty was Treasurer of the Johnson County Red Cross, a board member and volunteer for the Visiting Nurses Association, a board member for Iowa City’s Ecumenical Housing Corp., and a gift shop volunteer at Mercy Hospital in Iowa City. She was also a life-long member of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, serving as a council member and office volunteer for several years.

Betty was a proud mother of daughter Nancy Lepic (Steve Mullins) and son John Lepic (Mary), and grandmother of Ryan Lepic, Molly Paplow (Chris), Caroline Lepic, John “Jack” Lepic Jr., and great-granddaughter Laila Douglas. She was preceded in death by her father Leo W. Shonka, her mother Edith Stoner Shonka, and brother Robert L. Shonka.
Betty’s life was one well lived. She will be remembered by family and friends for her positive attitude and occasional stubbornness.

The family would like to express their appreciation for the compassion, kindness, and exceptional care provided by everyone at Taylor House in Des Moines.

In lieu of flowers, memorials should be directed to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Iowa City.
