Betty Jane Ost, 82, of Cincinnati, formerly of Yellow Springs, Ohio, and Jackson, Mississippi, died Wednesday, January 25. Betty is survived by her children Margaret Ballenger (Jeffrey), T. Michael Hall (Joann), Mark Hall (Becky), Patty Yates (Dave), Peggy Sanchez (Dan), Michael Ost (Paula), Julie Hornsby (Tony), and Elizabeth Berger (Rick); many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends. She was preceded in death by daughter Sheila Howell and by husbands Tom Hall and Tom Ost. During her long life, Betty worked at home as a wife and mother, at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, and as a volunteer at All Saints Episcopal Church in Cincinnati. In recent years, she rarely missed watching Jeopardy, finishing the advanced crossword puzzle (in pen), and giving her opinion on topics in the news and in her family. Betty was a strong and amazing woman who will be greatly missed. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, February 4th at 1:00 pm at All Saints Episcopal Church, 6301 Parkman Pl (45213).
