Betsy A. Tupper, age 78, of Sheboygan, died on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center surrounded by her family. She was born in Sheboygan on July 15, 1940, the daughter of the late Kasten and Gisela Foth McCloskey.
Betsy attended local schools and graduated from Sheboygan Central High School in 1959. On April 30, 1960 she was united in marriage to the love of her life, Thomas Tupper, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Plymouth. In her younger years, Betsy worked at Anderson Law Office, Lauer’s Grocery Store and Rocky Knoll. In 1978, Betsy and Tom bought the Greenbush Inn and spent the next 26 years serving sandwiches and homemade soup to the local patrons. They retired in 2004.
When Betsy was younger, she was an avid bowler, both miniature and big alleys. She loved spending time with her family, which meant the world to her. After retirement, she looked forward to casino trips with Tom and her bi-weekly hair appointments in Plymouth with Karen Frye.
Survivors include her husband, Tom Tupper, of Sheboygan; three children, Deb Streblow (Peter Fischer), of Sheboygan, Donna (Jeff) Wilkens, of Virginia, Peter Tupper (Laura French), of New Hampshire; five grandchildren, Brian Schiller, Becky (Mike) Huberty, Taylor Wilkens, Samantha (Luke) Davis, Paul (Heidi) Kerivan; five great-grandchildren, Kylie, Shane, Emerson, Grace, Athena; three sisters-in-law, Carol Laux, Jean (Emil) Worzella, Diana (Herb) Kulow; two brothers-in-law, Steve (Sarah) Tupper and Lyle Lorens.

In accordance to Betsy’s wishes, a private family service will be held.

Hello, So sorry to learn of Betsy's passing. She always had a smile that lit up the room she was in. We enjoyed many happy times at Greenbush Inn and "J" Lanes. We send our thoughts and prayers to everyone during this very emotional time. Love, Jim and Jean Peppers
So sorry to learn the news of your loss. I was in Plymouth Wednesday for my wife's PHS reunion. I always try to pick up a copy of the Review when in town. Saw Betsy's obit. Lots of water over the dam since those days when I first remember you guys dating. Betsy had lots of fun-loving energy. Those were great days. I could see you two were made for each other. Life gets busy with too many miles getting between folks. It seems I was only able to get one or two short visits in at your Greenbush Inn over the years. My loss. I think at the time I was making calls with dad who liked your place.
Tom, when the time may be right, it would be good to do a beer or coffee with you. Much to remember and update. God bless Betsy and all your family!

Dear Tom/"Tommy" and all of the Tupper family,
Betsy graduating to what comes after life on this earth is surely sad. Yet I know it brings a happiness too: That she is where we will all be too one day will bring cousins like me, with my dear wife Diane, the fun of a stronger connection with her too. With much love to you all,
My deepest sympathy to Tom and family. Remembering so many good times at Tupper’s bar. Good steak sandwiches and lots of fun. Susie was a worker and great smile to greet you.
Sorry Tom to hear about Betsy's passing. Will always remember the wonderful basketball games at St John the Baptist when you were coaching and she was cheering. Also remember working with her at lauer's she was always a bundle of fun hope you're doing well Jim.
We are so sorry for your loss Tom and family! It has been too many years but we think of you often. We also pray the Lord will lift you up at this time of grief!
To the Tupper family..... Tina & Cousy would like to say you have our deepest sympathy..... Tom, you and Betsy gave me the best memories and food ever... and probably the most fun times at the best watering hole ever!!! Thanks for everything!!! God bless your whole family!! Love you all!!!
Tom and family-
I am so very sorry for your loss.
It is my belief that Betsy will continue to live on through you, and the many others she touched during her life on Earth.
So sorry for your loss. I remember Betsy well. Loved being her babysitter for a year or so too. She always had great snacks for me to eat and give to her children. She was a vibrant and beautiful woman.
Barbara and Mike.
Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to hold forever in your heart.
