August 29, 1928 - April 12, 2020
On April 12, 2020 Easter Sunday, Betty Kasky of Loveland, Colorado transitioned to her new journey. Betty’s daughter Ann, and the hospice nurse held her hand. Betty’s sister Dorothy, (in Chicago) wished her well on her new journey. Tears flowed- and it was difficult to say, “it’s okay, to go.” Betty, (mom) had another journey in life now. The arc angels Michael and Gabriel took Betty’s hand, with reassurance of no more suffering. She always asked for guidance and protection from her guardian angels. Betty’s life began in Chicago, Illinois. Betty (Elizabeth) was born to Frank and Hazel Vincent on August 29, 1928. Betty was born during The Great Depression. Her family did not have much monetary wise. However, she learned to be resourceful, resilient, and grateful for everything she had. She loved Chicago and everything it offered. Betty began her career working at Marshall Fields Department store at the age of 14. In later years, she worked at Illinois Bell as a telephone operator. She became a full time mom to her family and loved caring for her family. She moved to Loveland, Colorado in November of 1993 with her Family. She worked in many customer service positions in Loveland. Betty loved gardening and canning. She loved listening to smooth jazz, and going to dinner with her friends and daughter. She loved old town Fort Collins. She loved the unique shops and was always a good conversationalist. Betty enjoyed travels to the islands of Hawaii with her daughter, sightseeing, and sitting, visiting friends and sitting by the ocean. Mom is a widow of a Navy Veteran....and always loved Pearl Harbor. Betty, (mom) loved crocheting blankets for children affected by trauma or illness. She always loved children; and thought of others first. Betty loved donating handmade baby blankets to her local funeral home for babies who were born stillbirth. In the later years Betty became politically active, phone banking for campaigns and meeting new people. She was passionate about wanting quality health care for all. She proudly worked phone banking for President Obama. She even attended her first protest with The Rocking Grannies in Fort Collins. She was invited to sit on stage. The Grannies gave Betty a sign to hold. Betty relished in her first protest- it was something she always wanted. She spoke her truth, and that is what mattered. Betty never concealed her passion for women. In her own way, she became an advocate for women. She had a message to women and still does: “Stand up for your rights.” She was not afraid to support women and survivors. She helped a sexual assault survivor find resources for help in Denver. Betty had so much yarn she decided to make blankets for women who are survivors of domestic violence. Betty never stopped dreaming and having goals for herself. Even though she was older her spirit was young. She had ambitions of wanting to go to law school. She loved talking to people from all different generations. She was grateful for everything. In 2008, Betty was proud to be a foster grandparent with Volunteers of America. Betty was 91 years young. Young at heart, and even with all of life’s challenges, she always had hope. Betty is survived by her daughter and friend, Ann Kasky of Loveland and Therese Kasky Force of Littleton; sister, Dorothy Donnelly of Chicago, Illinois; nieces and nephews; and her four-legged friend, Lady. Contributions can me made to Ann Kasky or to Crossroads Safehouse of Fort Collins.
