Betty Jean Benson Hazlett passed away in her home in Moab, Utah on August 22, 2009 at the age of 71.

She was born on September 5,1937 in Mt. Olive, North Carolina to Edith Howell and Velmon Benson. She learned the value of hard work being raised on the tobacco farms of the deep south. While working as a waitress at a drive-in she met the love of her life, Donald Lewis Hazlett. They were married on April 3, 1953 and later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. Most of her married life she kept the home fires burning in North Carolina while her husband served for nearly 30 years in the Marine Corps. During that time they joined the Church of Jesus > Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in Relief Society,Young Womenís, Sunday School, and as the early morning seminary teacher for many years. Upon her husbandís retirement from the military, she moved to Utah where family continued to be her focal point. Her kids and grandkids were the center of her attention.

When asked her favorite time of life she would say it was when all her kids were at home. Besides her family, Betty loved bowling, crocheting, and reading mystery novels. After a short stay in Idaho they relocated in Moab to enjoy the warmer weather.

Betty is survived by 3 children, Donald (Ramona) Hazlett, Pocatello, Idaho, Vickie (Mark) Landon, Idaho Falls, Idaho, and Steve (Nicki)Hazlett, Moab. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild (with another grandchild and great-grandchild both due in September, her sisters Sue Gamber of North Carolina, and Kaye Dail of Virginia.

She was preceded in death by her husband (Don), a son (Richard), and her parents.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
