Laura Ann Betz, 68, of Windsor, passed away on October 26, 2020 in Greeley, Colorado. She was born to Dewey and Wilma (Scott) North on May 12, 1952 in Hays, Kansas.

Laura, or Ann as she was known to those who loved her, grew up on the farm, enjoyed 4H, and loved the multitude of farm animals. She graduated from Ness City High School where she was a head cheerleader, was in track, played basketball, participated in the high school musicals, choir, band, and orchestra. She was also in a small traveling singing group, played multiple instruments, and excelled as a gifted pianist. Her gift of music brought numerous music scholarships as she entered her college years.

She enjoyed riding horses and was quite good at. Ann’s mom shared this with family, “I’ve never seen anyone ‘sit a horse’ better or more naturally than Ann.” Ann was fond of listening to classical music and 80’s hits, watching her husband Dennis play in his bowling leagues, the outdoors and her blooming flower gardens. Above all, she loved and adored her family, her daughters, and especially her grandkids. Ann loved attending all of their birthdays, school, sporting, 4H, musical, and overall life events. Ann’s greatest connection was to her family. She traveled far and wide to attend family reunions and weddings. Ann also cherished her close friendships. Ann loved her life on the farm with Dennis. She took up painting later in life and this hobby brought her great joy.

Ann is survived by her husband, Dennis Betz; siblings, Larry (Judy) North, Joy (Jim) Schell, Danny (Mary) North; children, Carmen (Rhett) Polka, Shiela (Brendon) Roberts, Jerry (Stacy) Betz, Norman Betz (Stephanie Royer), Steven (Becky) Betz and Denise (Darrell) Sahagian; 11 grandchildren, Talin and Dax Polka, Blake and Sofia Roberts, Kendra and Ryan Betz, Leo and Paxton Betz, Megan Sahagian, Brookelyn and Anastasia Leonard.

She was proceeded in death by her loving parents.

Ann and I met in the very early 70s in Hays, Kansas. Together we had way too much fun just learning about life and seeking adventures. I loved being Ann's friend. Sometime around then, Ann and I ventured out to Victor, Colorado where we spent a summer together working in Cripple Creek and seeking out mischief in all its forms in that beautiful setting. Then, Ann really blessed me by asking me to play at her wedding, which I did. Such a spirit this woman always had...such love for the sweetest things in life...and her spirit was undaunted. We reconnected after decades...Ann was becoming a very talented and unique artist, loving her life on the farm...and loving her music...the endeavor we both shared so lovingly. We still talked music after all these we both still played. I was stunned to hear that Ann had left us. I have spent hours on this day recalling all the memories that the two of us shared when we were young and slightly crazy...and all the times we connected online and for lunch in Longmont decades later. We were not that close over the past years...we were just old friends. And anyone who had the pleasure and the blessing of being a friend of Ann's knows so well the big, vast emptiness we all feel knowing she is no longer gonna write or get in touch. The years never dimmed the love that Ann gave to this world and to her friends. Ann was (and still is) one of the most magnificent souls I have ever known. May you always rest in Mercy's Arms, my dear friend. I know your family is experiencing a devastating loss and my is with you all. Ann was one of the bravest women I have ever met...and I know she showed her family the most beautiful life she could...and that she fought for throughout her life to keep sacred. My heart is with you all.

What I remember the most about Ann is her wonderful natural ability to play piano. Ann had a gift for the arts, piano, guitar, painting... and probably many other talents I didn't know about. Ann and I did have some very late night chats online. Ann play us a song with our parents singing along with you, Keith and Harley North Donna and Wilma Scott... Love you all 💓
