Betty Young Wyant

1955 -8th Grade Graduation


I graduated in 1959 and had a job waiting in Lubbock . Madra Irons, Linda Bumpus and I lived together until they both married. I lived there until '64 ( a swingin' single) and Louise Evans and Peggy Grant talked me into moving to Ft. Worth .

In early '65 I married and moved to Albuquerque , NM , where our first child was born; we moved to the Denver area several years later, where I still currently reside. Between '71 and '76 I had three children; Kelly is now 38 and is married to Chris and they have a son who just turned three, Trevor. Matthew is 36 and married to Sharon and they have an 11-yr-old daughter, Nikita, who Matthew has officially adopted as his own. Kari is 31 and married to Joe no children yet but we all wait expectantly!

After 13 years working with the same non-profit organization, I have partially retired and work 3 days a week. I live in Thornton , Colorado , a northern suburb of Denver . I enjoy an active social life and love spending time with family.
