With a warm smile, twinkling eyes, and a heart filled with love for her family, Betty Jane Guzzo embarked on her eternal journey on April 30, 2024, at the age of 93. Born on July 2, 1930, in Duluth, Minnesota, Betty's life was a tapestry woven with joy, laughter, and cherished memories.

Betty's journey was marked by unwavering strength and resilience, as she was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, son Richard Gustafson, and life partner Tom Carlson. Their memories lived on through the stories she shared and the love she bestowed upon those around her.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Betty's caregivers, Heather, Savannah, Sandy, Allie, Angela, Alyssa, Katelyn, Alana, KariAnne, Gina, and Caitlynn, whose compassionate care and unwavering dedication provided comfort and solace during her final days.
