  Memorial Service for Betty Hultquist will be held on Sunday, March 6, 2022, beginning at 2:00 p.m. at the Associated Church in Hawarden. Pastor Kevin Schneider is officiating, and a luncheon will follow in the church basement.

 Betty (Haberman) Hultquist (97) of Hawarden, Iowa, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 23, 2022 at her home.

   Betty was born on November 25, 1924 in York, Nebraska to Henry and Amalia Haberman. 

   Betty was married to Kenneth (Ken) Hultquist on August 28, 1945. To this union three sons were born: Brian, Blake, and Brad. They moved to Grand Junction, Colorado in 1957. The family relocated to Hawarden, Iowa in 1968 where they were members of the Associated Church. Betty loved making home-cooked meals, baking, playing bridge, and spending time with family. Betty was a member of the local PEO. Everyone who knew Betty was treated like family and welcomed into her home with a warm hug and amazing food.

   Betty was passionate about learning and showed this through her time spent as a classroom grandma, spending countless hours reading to her children, grand kids and great-grand kids, and making the decision to donate her body for scientific learning.

   Betty is preceded in death by her husband, Ken; two sons, Brian and Blake; her parents; two brothers and four sisters. 

   Betty is survived by her son, Brad (Hilary); daughters-in-law, Bev (of late Brian) Hultquist and Val (of late Blake) Hultquist; seven grandchildren, Heidi (Loren), Beau, Angela (Lyle), Ryan (Janelle), Austin, Taylor (Jim) and Ian; eight great-grandchildren, Madison, Ben, Jake, Ella, Maci, Ava, Lincoln, and Haley; and many extended family members whom she loved and adored. 

   In lieu of flowers please direct memorials to the Hawarden Public library.
