Betty L. Baldwin, age 73, of Granite City, IL, passed away on Sunday, May 22, 2016 at her home with her loving family by her side. Betty was born on May 16, 1943 in Elco, IL, a daughter of the late Gene and Donnie (Brooks) Kee.

On February 3, 1963, Betty married Thomas H. Baldwin, the love of her life, in Granite City, IL. Betty was a faithful and dedicated member of Tri-City Assembly of God Church in Granite City, IL; she was also the custodian at the church for many years. Betty was proud to be a Madison County election judge and she enjoyed going to church, singing in the choir and reading. She was very talented and could play several instruments, including the harmonica, piano and ukelele. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family, especially with her grandchildren, whom she adored. Betty loved life, she loved to laugh, but most of all she loved her Lord and her family. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by one sister, Almeda Kee and by seven brothers, Lee, Vernon, Jess, Enos, George, Lester and Dale Kee.
