With profound sadness we announce the passing of our loving mother, Betty Stone, who was friend to all whose lives she touched. She passed peacefully on January 28th,,2023, in her 97th year.
Born in Texarkana ,Texas, in 1925, Betty witnessed incredible changes in the world. She married a young aviator, Jeff Stone, in 1943 and together they traveled the world and ran several successful businesses including the Heart Six Ranch in Moran, Wyoming. She traveled all over Europe during a year in which she followed her husband who was the Operations officer on the Essex, a naval carrier. She also loved the island of Roatan in Honduras where she knew so many on the island.
Betty graduated from the University of Redlands and went on to obtain three masters degrees. Her thesis for her history masters was on the appaloosa horse, a breed she and Jeff raised. She used her education to teach English on Kodiak Island in Alaska, in Dubois, Wyoming and Jackson Hole.
Entertaining was important to Betty and the coffee pot was always on. She loved having her family in her home where many happy celebrations were held. The bridge cards were always out and friends always welcome. All enjoyed her intelligence and dry sense of humor. She was known for being feisty and funny!
Betty will be missed by her family, friends and the compassionate caregivers at Sage Living. She will be cherished by her children Kirk Stone and daughter Cindy Garetson- Sepich. She leaves five grandchildren- Jeff (Burr) Garetson, Matthew Garetson, Jordan and Coulter Stone and Steve Davidson. .She also leaves four great-grandchildren – Serene, Ryleigh, Jaxson and Blyane Stone.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the summer of 2023.
