Obituary: Betty Louise Barger (Grandma Betty)
November 19, 2008
Betty Louise Barger, born Oct. 1, 1929 in Blackwell, Okla., passed away on Nov. 8, 2008 in Denver.
Betty went to school in Oklahoma for a degree in Education. While at school, she met James Dale. They were joined in holy matrimony on Jan. 29, 1949 and they were happily married for 48 years until James’ passing in 1997. Their union was blessed with two children, Patricia and Greg.
In 1989, James and Betty headed out to Colorado and made their new residence on a lake outside of Woodland Park. After a few years in Woodland Park, they moved to Grand Lake, with their grandson, Patrick. Betty was highly regarded in our small community for her loving spirit, kindness, generosity and her world famous fudge. In addition to being a loving wife and devoted sister, Betty was a beloved mother and grandmother, whose strength, support and smile will be greatly missed by each and everyone who knew and loved her.
Betty is survived by her daughter Patricia Barger of Houston, Texas and son Greg Barger of Nacogdoches, Texas, two grandchildren, Patrick Barger and Dara Barger and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and many friends.
Please join Betty’s friends and family for a life celebration and lunch at the Granby Senior Center starting at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21. For more details or questions please call (720) 530-1066.
