Divorced When Children Were Young

John Batten was married to Lillian Hacker. However, the details about their wedding and early life are not known. 

He was a United Airlines official by profession. Together the couple had one child. 

She was born on January 1, 1957, at McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas. The couple named their daughter Karen Sue Batten.

When his daughter was young, the couple got separated from each other. The reason behind their divorce is still not clear. 

Shares A Good Bond With The Stepfather.

His wife (Lillian Hacker) remarried another guy named as Bernard Barcio. The couple shared wedding vows in the year 1967

He was a Latin teacher at Park School. His wife remarried at the age of thirty-six. His daughter was raised in the neighborhood of Indianapolis

His daughter had an excellent bond with her stepfather. Because of him, she got interested in teaching and painting. 

She is an American school teacher, painter, and second lady of the United States since 2017.

However, both of them are not alive now. John Batten died in the year 1988. His ex-wife took his last breath at the age of seventy-three. She died in 2004.

Daughter Had Two Marriages

When his daughter, Karen Pence, was at Butler University, she met her first husband, John Steven Whitaker. She did both her bachelor's and Master's degree from there. 

He was a medical student at Indiana. They got along well and decided to get married one day.  

She was only 21 years old at that time when she got married. The wedding took place in Brewster country, Texas, on August 4, 1978

The couple ended their relationship and separated their ways later. The main reason of their broken marriage was lack of understanding as the couple was young.

After having divorced, Karen Pence fell in love with Mike Pence. The way they got introduced is kind of interesting as she was playing guitar at mass at St. Thomas Aquinas Church

Their first date was ice skating at Indiana State Fairgrounds. The couple dated almost nine months before getting engaged on August 1984

After one year of engagement, the couple tied the knot on June 8, 1985.
