Obituary


Laurie Lyn Betts, 46, of Gladstone, MO went home peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior on May 10, 2017 at NorthCare Hospice. She was born on February 17, 1971 in Kansas City, MO. She graduated from North Kansas City High School in May, 1989.



Laurie’s life would seem short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her smile, kind heart and free spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Laurie’s life would seem short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her smile, kind heart and free spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved her.



Her passion in life was to help others, through her jobs and personal life. She loved to sing, she had an amazing voice. She has traveled to many places with her jobs and friend Barry. She went hunting with family and fishing with her buddy John. She loved her furry kids, Mary Jane and Sunshine more than anything. She was carefree and fun loving. Her witty sense of humor was always present in her last few days alive, by the lip snarls she would give us in the hospital.



She is survived by her loving mother, Nancy Snell and step-dad, Ted, of Trimble, MO; father, Barry Betts and step-mom, Janine, of Chamberlain, SD; brothers, Steve Betts (Tammie), Lathrop, MO, Mont Snell, North Dakota; sisters, Angie Betts (Brian), Liberty, MO; Jessica Betts, Pukwana, SD; Sarah Parker (Ryan), Dartmouth, MA; Debby Yelverton, KC, MO; Kathy Epley (Tom), KC, MO; nephews, Dakota Betts, Logan Betts, Niketa Yelverton, Isaac Epley, Montana and Jacob Snell and nieces, Avery and Harriet Parker and Kaitlynn Snell; her companion, Sunshine; and all of her extended family, especially her Auntie Joy Curry and many, many friends that she adored.



A visitation will be held Tuesday, May 16, 2017 from 12 noon to 2pm at Avondale Baptist Church, 2501 NE Parvin Road, Kansas City, MO 64116. The funeral will take place at 2pm at the church. Burial will be at Antioch Pioneer Cemetery located at 75th and Antioch in Merriam, KS.
