HOWELL, Elizabeth Betty Temple

November 24, 2013 12:27 AM

(1913 - 2013) passed away on November 17, 2013. Betty will continue to be an inspiration to family and friends, who often heard her exclaim, "We have so much to be grateful for!" She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and caring friend to everyone she met. Betty grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she graduated from Jackson High School in 1931 and was described in her senior yearbook as "Grace in all her steps. Heaven in her eye. In every gesture - dignity and love. " Betty graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Nebraska.

Betty and her husband, Weldon U. Howell, raised their family in Dallas, Texas where they enjoyed participating in a wide variety of community and social activities. They also travelled extensively throughout the world. Through teaching Sunday school and tutoring, Betty helped children and teenagers reach their full potential. Throughout her life she enthusiastically encouraged her students and her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to broaden their horizons.

After the passing of her husband, Betty moved to Santa Barbara, California, to be close to her children and their families. She enjoyed attending cultural programs and Christian Science church services in Santa Barbara, frequently using Easy Lift, a community-based transportation service.

Betty will continue to be treasured by her children and their spouses, Weldon U. (Joe) Howell, Jr. and Barbara, Sally Howell, Susan and David Howell, and extended family members and special friends. Betty's grandchildren Robert Howell, Amy Howell Wagner, Sarah Colmaire, Ben Howell and Sarah Howell Natalini, as well as her great- grandchildren Kobe and Hunter Wagner, Devan, Kylie and Hayden Howell, Beckett and Cleo Howell, will always remember family gatherings with their beautiful, joyful and appreciative Grandmother Betty.
