LUCO, BettyPosted: November 28th, 2020
1920 – 2020
Betty Luco, born Thelma Elizabeth Borgen, passed away at 100+ years of age on November 14, 2020, of natural end of life causes.
Betty was the only child born to Austin Borgen and Catherine Ingabore Borgen (Simmons).
Betty’s greatest treasure was her family: Husband John Luco (1915-1966); son Ian (1954-2012), Brenda, Shane & Danielle, Geoffrey, Cody, Garrett; daughter Cheryl, Spencer, Gary; daughter Mary Lynne, Darilyn; daughter Thelma, Bruce, Alli, Rebecca & Shaun, and so many loved ones who came before. She enjoyed the best extended family-in-laws, nieces and nephews, that one could ever know. We all loved her. Her Betty smile warmed our hearts.
Betty was a teacher for nearly 40 years in several schools, including Coalhurst, Nobleford, Picture Butte, White and McNally. She appreciated the young people she got to know, always wanting them to succeed.
Betty loved to read and play cards, had hidden artistic talents, could garden 160 acres, fix sump pumps and fences, shovel country driveways, and host the best Christmas Eve parties and summer picnics, while raising four kids much on her own, and teaching full-time.
Selfless, giving and kind, Betty was the epitome of a strong, capable woman, who taught values and gave so much.
Love to you, mom. We will miss you here on earth. God bless you.
A memorial will be held in the springtime in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Betty wa s a lovely lady and teacher Bless her.
We have such great memories of your Mom when she lived across the
road from us. I especially had many wonderful conversations with her
& gleaned much wisdom from her. Always so positive, friendly & caring.
She took on the whole neighborhood bringing us & all the kids together
for a very memorable, fun luncheon (over 25 kids at that time).
What a lady. What a lady of faith as well & she demonstrated her
Christian love to me always.
May each of you, her family count your blessings to have had such a
wonderful, loving, God honoring Mother. I know she will be always
with you through the many memories you made together.
Our sympathies to each of you.
Please let us know when the spring memorial is here in Lethbridge.
With love & prayers as you enter this 1st Christmas time without
her loving presence.
Brenda & George
