Betty Osborne, who has dedicated herself to honoring O’Fallon veterans, now finds herself in the spotlight as the recipient of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution Community Service Award. Her numerous contributions to the community and tireless spirit at 90 years young helped earn Betty the prestigious award, as well as recommendations from her fellow committee members and Mayor Herb Roach. 

The prestigious award has eligibility requirements that include contributions to the community, which DAR- Cahokia Mounds Chapter member Kathy Dice said that Osborne has made in spades. “She has really worked hard to bring so many great things to O’Fallon and has dedicated her whole life to honoring our military. She’s so deserving of this award. We’re so pleased to be able to honor her,” said Dice, who is currently serving as the Chapter Community Service Award Chairman.
