Betty Ann Duke North, age 80, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed over to her eternal home on March 11, 2007. Betty entered this life on May 30, 1926, in Heber City to Seymour and Mary Ann Ludlow Duke. Betty grew up during the Depression era and learned to do many things as a youngster that served her well as she matured into a beautiful young woman. She completed her education graduating from Wasatch High School.
Betty married Max D. North in 1947. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Her family has been the focus of her life. We know that our relationship with her will be eternal. What great beneficiaries we all have been to have spent our whole lives around her. She has faithfully served in church callings that have been extended to her, especially as the Young Women’s and Relief Society presidents. Betty loved art and photography and we are all lucky recipients of her love of art. She faithfully endured, without complaint, the trials placed before her.
Betty is survived by her husband Max, daughter Jeanne (Ralph) Sorensen, sons Lee, Phil (Carla) and Kirk (Melodie), sisters Lois Wright and Bernice (Bill) Price, brothers Neil (Nelda) and Larry (Joan). She is preceded in death by her parents, son Craig, grandson Preston, brother Robert (Eleanor), and sister Dortha Dayton.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday, March 14, 2007, at noon, in the Heber 1st, 6th, 9th LDS Chapel, 325 East 500 North, Heber City. A visitation will be on Wednesday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. prior to the services, both at the LDS Church. Interment will be in the Heber City Cemetery.
Planning Department staff on Wednesday shared an idea for a new concept, dubbed the Community Planning Lab, with the Summit County Council. The initiative strives to engage people who want to better understand the processes that drive executive decisions.
