On March 17, 2012, Elizabeth (Betty) Louise Spaeth was called home to her heavenly Father. Betty was born on March 1, 1926 in Valley City, ND to George R. Wilson and Marie Kirtland.
She spent her early years in Aylmer and Leal, ND before moving to MN where she graduated in 1944 from Mahnomen High School.
Betty married Jerome H. Spaeth on August 12, 1949 in Mahnomen and soon after moved to ND where she raised her family. She and her husband eventually settled in Fargo where she continued to live until her death.
She was an active member of her parish, served on the Altar Society and was involved in various volunteer activities including Meals on Wheels and working as a hairdresser at a long term care facility.
Betty was an avid bridge player, enjoyed her exercise class, playing cards, and socializing with family and friends. Those who had the pleasure of knowing Betty will remember her for her kindness, generosity, patience and keen sense of humor. Most of all, she will be remembered by her family as a loving wife and mother.
