Betty (mom) was a devoted wife and mother. She married Robert Koltvedt on March 11, 1944 and celebrated 72 years of marriage was interrupted only by the passing of Robert on June 4, 2016.

She was a member of the Otsego Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, volunteer at the voting office a Den Mother. Her hobbies included bowling, card and dice playing, crocheting, ceramics, biking, square dancing, ice cream. Her affectionate nickname "Bird" was obvious with her constant chirping. She could make friends with a total stranger in minutes. Her preferred TV shows included Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and the Bill O'Rielly Show.

Betty's favorite things in life however, were truly her husband, children, extended family and church. Mom (Betty) is already sorely missed and will be in our hearts forever.

Mom will be laid to rest at Willamette National cemetery in Portland, Oregon beside our beloved Father. Due to current conditions (Covid) a date has yet to be set. If you would like to donate to a charity in Betty's name would be one of mom's choices. Thanks from the family for your understanding.
