John, I was sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I didn't know her but her story showed she was a wonderful person. Wishing you and Lori peace in the coming days and fond memories of your days together with her.

Betty Uvaas will be deeply missed at Bella Vista Retirement Community. She faithfully attended my exercise classes, always with a smile and laughter. She was such a good sport! Always willing to get a good laugh in at the expense of herself. I even named one exercise the "Betty Challenge". Let's just say it took a lot of coordination and sometimes Betty wouldn't get it quite right. She would never get frustrated and was always the first to laugh at her mistake. She was a joy! She was an amazing friend to all the residents, especially the new ones. She made sure to sit with them at meals, take them to activities and introduce them to other residents. She was a great conversationalist! I loved to spend time talking with Betty and hearing her stories. Sweet, kind, honest, caring, fun...so many words I could use to describe her. Probably the most descriptive to me was friend. Betty was a true friend and I will miss her so much.

My sincere sympathy to the Uvaas family. I knew you mom and dad from the Grace Lutheran Church years ago. They were fine people, the best you'd ever want to meet. I remember some of you from school days, so sorry for your loss. Scott Tritt

Betty was a grand lady! I babysat for 4 of their children when I was in 7th and 8th grade. I’d get to their house off the school bus and she had gone to work as a nurse on a 3-11 shift. She always had clear instructions for me, which kids needed baths, books to read to them and supper in the oven. John was there but he went out to milk as soon as we had eaten. She definitely influenced my career choice as I became an RN because of Betty’s influence. A grand lady indeed!
