Elizabeth Ann “Betty” Coffman, 81, of Tekamah NE


Elizabeth Ann “Betty” Coffman, 81 years of Tekamah, Nebraska passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 20th at the Golden Living Center in Tekamah after a lingering illness.

Betty was born on August 18, 1933 in Tekamah, Nebraska, the second of three children, to George and Mildred (Marshall) Plummer.  She received her education in Tekamah, graduating from Tekamah High School in 1951.

On March 4, 1951, Betty married Robert E. Coffman. To this union two children were born; Dan and Denise. They resided on a farm north of Tekamah in Riverside Township for 24 years until moving into town in 1975.

Betty was a devoted wife for 64 years and loving mother, who took joy in helping Bob on the farm driving tractors and grain trucks while also keeping active in her children’s lives. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Tekamah and served as the church organist for many years, playing at Sunday services, weddings and funerals. As a member of PW, (Presbyterian Women), Betty worked with the Hospitality Group preparing food and working in the kitchen for dinners and funerals held at church.  Betty’s musical talent kept her busy as the organist for the Order of Eastern Star and Job’s Daughters for many years as well.

Betty also worked for Burt County 6R Country School, Farm Bureau Insurance and Burt County Bank Insurance Company in Tekamah.

Over the years, Betty has enjoyed bowling league, raising a large garden and canning.  She was an excellent cook and baker, loved to read books and her card game of choice was ‘Pitch’.  After she and Bob retired from farming in 1992, they started to enjoy traveling to different places, most especially to South Padre Island, Texas where, for over 20 years, they would spend wonderful winters together. During her lifetime, she has enjoyed many friendships both near and far.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Robert and Jim Plummer; her beloved daughter, Denise Trumbo.

Phone Scam Alert From Tekamah Police Department


An aggressive and sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, , has been making the rounds throughout Tekamah and Burt County. Callers claim to be employees of the IRS, but are not. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.

Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting.
Or, victims may be told they have a refund due to try to trick them into sharing private information. 

If the phone isn’t answered, the scammers often leave an “urgent” callback request.

Note that the IRS will never: 1) call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill; 2) demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe; 3) require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card; 4) ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone; or 5) threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
