Betty Lou Mast

Obituary Betty Lou Mast flew away from her earthly pain and suffering to her real home to heavenly rest on November 3, 2020 surrounded by family and in Gods presence in the comfort of her home. Preceded in death by her husband Bob, son Donnie and infant daughter Patricia, Betty is survived by her daughters: Debbi McSpadden and husband Kevin of Nampa, Idaho and Pam Sullivan and husband Larry of Abilene, Texas; grandchildren Kristen Gotfred and husband Mark; Kendra Paris and husband Joel; Kari Madore and husband Josh; Kristopher Sullivan; and great-grandson Julien Paris. Born to Paulina and Tony Brosemer on May 19, 1929 in Lebo, Kansas, Betty was the third of four children. When Betty was a teenager, the Brosemer family moved to La Junta, Colorado where Betty met the love of her life, Bobby Mast, at the young age of 17 when she served him a hot fudge sundae with extra fudge! The couple married in 1947 and thus began a love story that lasted over 70 years. Betty and Bob raised three children: son Donnie and daughters Debbi and Pam. Another daughter, Patricia, died in infancy. Choosing her family as her career, Betty focused her time and attention on creating a stable, warm and happy home life for her family and providing care, compassion and food for many friends, neighbors and their pets. Betty was the consummate caregiver who regularly put family and friends needs before her own. When Bob suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage stroke in 1986, her life became singularly focused on his recovery, care and well-being. She performed this role thoroughly, lovingly and proudly, continuing until his death in 2018. Bettys faith was strong and she served an active member of First Christian Church for decades. She was extensively involved in the Churchs operations and served in many roles. Everyone who knew her unanimously agreed: you could always count on Betty to provide food, organize a project, clean the kitchen and many other tasks! A great source of joy and pride for Betty was found in her grandchildrenKristen, Kendra, Kari and Kristopher, and later with her great-grandson, Julien. Each of them enjoyed a special relationship with Grandma Betty that often involved cooking, fishing, adopting and taking care of animals, throughout their lives and her legacy of care and compassion lives on through them. For the last several years of her life, Betty struggled with multiple health issues that left her in pain much of the time. A constant source of dedication, strength and inspiration to family and friends, she fought long and hard with persistent endurance. The family would like to express our appreciation to the hospice nurses and staff who visited and assisted with that pain: Alana, Jana, Jamie, Jessica, Crystal and Stacy. Were grateful for the numerous caregivers who provided Betty comfort and assistance throughout the years and we extend our heartfelt thanks to Jeanette Wallace, Bettys extraordinary caregiver whose loyalty, friendship, care and support absolutely enhanced her quality of life beyond measure. Funeral services are scheduled for 2 PM, Saturday, November 7, 2020 at Denton-Wood Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow in Carlsbad Cemetery.

Right now you all are going through a storm in your life with the Loss of your Mom and Grandmother it is alright to cry, wonder why those are feelings don't hold them in . Read John 6:15-21 talks about the Storm . God is always there for us . God had a purpose for calling Betty home with him . We don't know what Gods Purpose is maybe his purpose is to bring someone close to the family that isn't close or Close to God that has drifted away and wants God in their life . We all go through storms and trials in our life . The storms and Trials we go through helps our faith get stronger

Betty I wasn't able to be on your side. This is hard to take but I had told you many times. One day it your time and now I know where exactly where you are. I love you to the moon and back. You always had a piece of my heart in you. And I really believe your are so happy and you fly as far as you can. Of all people you have deserve your golden wings. Go to mama to show how to fly. That makes me so happy that am sure you and my mom are together love you Pam Jacobo Duran.
