   Betty Louise Lane Green, passed away peacefully in the early morning of June 28, 2010 and returned to the arms of her loving Father in Heaven and a glorious reunion with her loved ones that preceded her.

Dale Green proposed while on leave from Ft. Lewis Washington.  They were married May 15, 1946, and returned to Washington to live until Dad was discharged from the U.S. Army.  They were sealed in the Ogden LDS Temple on January 8, 1976.
Mom worked as the Morgan County Recorder for 14 years, and was always an active participant in the community.  She was a member of the Culturette’s club which she enjoyed immensely.  Mom loved to garden,
write poetry, and travel.  She and dad spent many happy times in their motorhome traveling around the country.  Mom was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,   fulfilling her many church callings with a glad heart and strong desire to serve her Father in Heaven to the best of her abilities.  Mom and Dad served in the Illinois, Chicago Mission and influenced many lives while there.
Mom created a loving and beautiful home for her family.  Her children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren are her greatest legacy, and she loved them fiercely.  She will be in our hearts until we are together once again.
