Betty Sue Yow discusses her husband John’s deteriorating health with a friend on October 30, Married for 58 years, Betty Sue and John grew up on local farms and eventually took over a 305 acre farm that had been in Betty Sue’s family for over 230 years. Throughout the years they have turned down numerous offers from cell phone companies, real estate agencies and others to buy their land. But with John’s health in decline, they have had to rely more on their two sons to maintain the farm. “This is a family farm. We hope that somebody will continue to farm it,” says Betty Sue.
