Betty Ann McQueen

Born October 14, 1930

Betty Ann McQueen, 82, of Greeley died Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at North Colorado Medical Center. She was born on October 14, 1930 in Eaton to Edward A. and Anna (Norlander) Duell.

Betty worked at Albertsons for 15 years. She was a fun mom and was very active with her children. The family enjoyed spending weekends at Red Feather and Chambers Lakes.

To the family of Betty McQueen.
My husband was a roommate of your father at NCMC Rehab at the time of his death. During that time, Betty became our friend. We saw her many times at Village Inn. We will miss her, God bless and comfort you.
