Our mother Betty Marie Espinoza (Gallegos) entered into eternal peace on March 4 at home surrounded by her family and friends.
Betty was born on April 29, 1938, to Eduardo Gallegos and Francesquita Chavez in San Luis. She is preceded in death by her brothers Tom and Edward Gallegos; she is survived by her brother, Paul Gallegos, and her sister, Carmen Martinez.
She leaves behind her son, David Espinoza, and her daughter, Renee Lesser; her grandchildren, Leche Johnston and Dalton Lesser; her great grandchildren, Jaxson and Korbin Johnston.
She worked at Colorado State University for 28 years as an administrative assistant. She was very proud to serve her church through efforts of the altar and rosary society, Fiesta Fundraisers and Christmas bazaars.
A viewing at Bohlender Funeral Chapelwas held Friday, March 6. Funeral serviceswere held on Saturday, March 7, at Holy Family Catholic Church a rosary at 9:00 a.m., followed by a Catholic mass at 9:30a.m., and a reception.
God had given our mom two beautiful angels from heaven that cared for her over the last year. So much gratitude, love and respect for her sister, Carmen Martinez, and her sister in law, Jane Espinoza, for their endless love in honoring her wishes to remain at home. We owe a great deal of thanks and love for their selfless devotion over the past year.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that contributions be made to Holy Family Catholic Church or Gateway Hospice, both of Fort Collins, in care of Bohlender Funeral Chapel, 121 W. Olive, Fort Collins, Colorado 80524.
