Obituary for Betty J. Carnahan

MELBOURNE, Fla. — Betty Jane Hiner Carnahan, formerly of Ashland, passed away peacefully Nov. 15 at her home at Discovery Village, Melbourne, Florida. She was born Aug. 5, 1924 in Ashland.

Betty is survived by daughter Catherine Cole of Hamden, Connecticut; son Harold J. (Lydia) Cole of Satellite Beach, Florida; grandson John (Katherine) Cole of Jacksonville, Florida; granddaughter, Erin (Owen) McBride of Columbia, South Carolina; stepson Thomas (Diane) Carnahan of Fairfax, Virginia; stepgrandchildren Chris (Renee) Carnahan of Fairfax, Virginia, and Mark (Tina) Carnahan of Lorton, Virginia; seven stepgreat-grandchildren; stepson Davis (Barbara) Carnahan of Powell; stepgrandchildren Bryan of Perrysburg, Eric of Cincinnati and Kate Carnahan of Powell; and stepson Stephen Carnahan of Tucson, Arizona.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband of 42 years, Kenneth Carnahan in 2015; her parents, John P. and Edith Norton Hiner; sister-in-law, Betty Lou Hiner; brother-in-law, Richard W. Forbes; and first husband, John H. Cole, DVM, in 1981.

She is also survived by four siblings, Harold L. (Hank) Hiner of Ashland, OH, Donald E. (Geraldine) Hiner of Columbia, TN, Mary Anne Forbes and Henry N. (Norma) Hiner of Ashland, OH.

Betty was a graduate of Ashland High School class of 1942 and Ohio State University in 1946 with a BA in music education.

Betty was a very talented musician gifted with perfect pitch. She was first violin in the Ashland High School Orchestra and the Ashland Symphony Orchestra. Professionally, she performed with the Los Angeles Light Opera Company. Her dedication to music remained constant throughout her life. She not only taught music in the Ohio public schools in Jackson, Massillon, Bellville and Ashland she also directed children and adult choirs in Ohio. After moving to Satellite Beach, Florida, she taught piano, violin and voice well into her 80s. When performing, audiences were entertained with her beautiful singing voice, violin virtuosity and pianistic ability that allowed her to play in any style music, classical to jazz.

Burial along with her husband Kenneth will be in New Pittsburg cemetery at a later date to be determined by the family.

Memorial contributions in Betty’s honor may be given to the Ashland Symphony Orchestra, 401 College Avenue, Ashland, OH 44805; or Vitas Healthcare, 4450 W. Eau Gallie Blvd., Ste. 250; Melbourne, FL 32934.

The family was assisted by Denbow-Gasche Funeral Home.
