Elizabeth “Betty” R. Tuey, age 93, of Spring Lake Park, MN died peacefully at home on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 while surrounded by family. She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Robert A. Tuey; parents, Frank La Belle and Rose Johnson; brothers, William La Belle, Wilfred La Belle, Clifford La Belle; and son, William Tuey Sr.
Elizabeth was loving, caring, supportive, spunky, and stubborn to the end. She was married to the love of her life on August 12, 1947, and they had four children together. Both of them served in the US Army during World War II-Elizabeth as an Army nurse in 1944. After her service she became certified as a nursing assistant. Then when her first child was born she devoted all of her time to her growing family. She loved to play cards, fishing, and Elvis but her biggest passion was always family. She always told us “Family sticks together and comes first”.
She will be deeply missed by her children, Roger (Bobbie) Tuey, Vicki Forster, and Barb Huhta; grandchildren, Barb Forster, Bill Tuey Jr., Michelle Tuey, Tracy Lukins, John Sandberg, Tim Tuey, Sue Hamre, Michael Sandberg, Ben Tuey; and many great and great great grandchildren.
Her service will be held on May 31, 2018 at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, 7601 34th Avenue South, MPLS, at 12:45PM.
