Elizabeth A. Larkin
Elizabeth A. Betsy Larkin of Westminster, Colo. passed away at home on August 21, 2006.
Betsy received her Bachelors of Arts degree from William Paterson College in New Jersey and her Masters degree in Special Education from CU/Denver. She taught elementary school for 24 years, spreading her love of children over four different states: New Jersey, Arizona, Texas and Colorado, currently in the City of Thornton at Mapleton School District #1.
Betsys sense of fun and commitment to family and friends found expression in her sense of humor, which all who knew her experienced as capable of illuminating both the smallest details and deepest dimensions of life and in her love of travel, with annual visits to the New Jersey shore, and in recent years trips to Mexico and the Mediterranean.
She is survived by her loving husband of 24 years, David S.C. Larkin; her beloved children, Paul D. Larkin and Kimberly P. Larkin; her parents, George and Pat Procak of Phoenix, Ariz. and White Lake; her sisters Francie Noyes of Phoenix, Ariz., Tina Tyler of Greenfield, Mass., and Kate Douglas of Shutesbury, Mass.
