Our dear mother and grandmother, Betty Jean Little, 86, of Rock Springs, Wyoming was called home on January 6, 2022 following an accidental injury. She passed away surrounded by her loving family.

She attended K-12 schools in Cope, graduating from Cope High School in 1952. She attended Central Business College in Denver in 1953 where she received a post-graduate Business Degree.
