May 10, 1927 — Oct. 11, 2018
Betty Jean Casavant, age 91, passed away on Oct. 11, 2018 at Neawanna by the Sea in Seaside, Oregon.
Betty was born May 10, 1927 in Valley, Nebraska, to Edith and Delbert Speer, the youngest of six brothers and sisters.
Betty grew up in Ovid, Colorado, and moved to California as a young woman. After many years of dedicated service with the civil service she retired from the Portland VA Medical Center and moved to Cannon Beach, Oregon, with her husband, Frank.
Betty served in the community endlessly, volunteering and giving of herself to help others. She volunteered in many capacities at the Community Church in Cannon Beach, and enjoyed being with her church family and Pastor David so much.
Betty is preceded in death by her husband, Francis (Frank) Casavant; son, Douglas; and granddaughter, Kimmy. Survivors include her daughter, Jerrilynn Randall, and son-in-law, John; 12 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and nephews. She will be sorely missed by everyone in the family, and her endless family stories will live in our hearts forever.
Betty was a loving “mom” and friend to many. She knew no strangers, and was loved by all.
Betty loved traveling, the ocean, “party pants,” reading, plays, old movies, friends and family. Her love of Christmas was contagious, and she shared the magic of the season with everyone.
Her family wishes to extend their greatest and warmest gratitude for the wonderful care given to her by everyone in the community, with a special thank you to Mindy, Pastor David, Linda and the wonderful staff at Neawanna.
Please join us in a celebration of life at noon Oct. 27 at Cannon Beach Community Church on East Washington Street. For those who wish, a donation can be made to the church, to the “Betty Casavant Fund.”
