  1. My deepest sympathy to the Morgan Families. I worked with Betty at Southern Colorado Clinic from 1974-1985. She was a sweet, kind and fun lady.
    Betty saw me get married and become a mother to two sons. At separate times, she had to attend to each one of them and my husband. First Mike, he smashed his finger while working at the CF&I, it was an ugly thing. He had to wait until the next day, when the clinic opened to see Betty. She relieved the pressure on the fingernail and she saved the day!
    Our oldest son, Ryan, was about 5 years old when his younger brother Kiel, slammed a door in his face, cutting a gash in his right eyebrow. Dr. Dwyer threw a couple of stitches on the gash and Betty was the calming factor for Ryan.
    Kiel’s injury happened at the City Park and my parents came rushing into the clinic one afternoon, Kiel’s mouth gushing with blood, he had practically bitten through his tongue. There wasn’t much that could be done but, we got great instructions on how to take care of him and what he would be like for a few days.
    Betty was a joy to work with and I will always have wonderful memories of her! God Bless

  2. Rick so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was a wonderful lady! I remember all the times in Scouts & both of our nursing careers. Had many conversations with her with patients, etc, she will
    Be missed!! Sincerely, Sandi Gott-Vance
