Bettylee Andersen of Scottsdale, Arizona, passed away peacefully on March 10, 2017. Betty was born in Chicago, Illinois on October 19, 1929. She graduated from Austin High School in Chicago.

After high school, Betty married Donald Edwin Andersen in December 1949 in Chicago. She dabbled in many careers throughout her life, never one to sit still for long, but her most important (and favorite) roles in life were that of mother, grandmother, and friend.

Betty had a life-long passion for great music, dancing, shopping, chocolates, and reading a good mystery. She enjoyed puzzles, hunting for a great bargain, and traveling to Mexico, even fulfilling her dream of living in Mexico for several years before returning to Arizona to be closer to her family.

Her family and friends will miss her great sense of humor, her smile, her hugs, and her stories. Betty had the best stories.

Betty is survived by her beloved family: daughters Leslie and Stephanie, her sons-in-law Keith and KC, her best friend and cousin Barbara, and of course her grandchildren, Kelly, Nicole, and Michael.

Committal services and Inurnment will be held at 2:00pm on March 16, 2017 at Paradise Memorial Gardens, 9300 E. Shea Blvd., Scottsdale, Arizona.
