  Bethany Sue Chall, age 68, passed away early Friday, June 9, 2023, at Trinity Health Oakland Hospital (St. Joseph Mercy Oakland) in Pontiac, MI.

  She was born September 10, 1954, in Adrian, MI to Rev. Leland E. and Joanne I. (Wieland) Penzien.  She married Craig Chall and had four children, Corey, Colin, Cristin, and Cary.  Family was her passion.  She deeply loved her entire family, but especially her children and grandchildren.  They were the reason she fought so hard and long.
