Betty Irene Paver Lovelace, age 93, died on September 14, 2019 in Longmont Community Hospital. She
is survived by her four daughters, Charlotte Hartley (Rob, deceased), Margaret Lam (Roger), Kathryn
Peterson, and Martha Lovelace; and by six grandchildren, Abigail Hartley, Caitlin Hartley, Brennan
Peterson (Rebecca), Austin Peterson (Stacy), Anna Peterson Wieman, and Wyatt Lovelace; and ten

Betty was born in Gary, Indiana in 1925. She grew up in Evanston, Illinois. She married Walter (Wally) in
Evanston, Illinois in 1946. Betty and Wally moved to Boulder in 1949. 

Betty and Wally personified the Boulder community's liberal commitment to social justice and equality for
all. In 1965 Betty and her teenage daughter Char joined a group of Boulder activists who traveled to
Alabama to join a civil rights march on Selma. 

Betty was very resourceful, gregarious, confident, loyal, and caring. She loved to dance and sing and have
fun. She enjoyed hiking in the Colorado mountains, collecting antiques, going to garage sales, and following
current events and politics. She was a volunteer for several organizations. She was very active in the
Boulder County Democratic Party and The Nomad Playhouse. 

Before her retirement, Betty worked for many years for the Boulder County Justice Department, helping
people assigned community service find places to use their skills to aid their community while fulfilling
their sentences. With her empathy and common sense she excelled at her work. 

A private memorial service will be held when her family and friends can gather to share memories
and laughter, just as Betty wanted.

I worked with and supervised Betty as a volunteer with Boulder County's Community Service Program. I loved Betty, we all loved Betty for the many years she was an important member of our team. Whether she was listening to and supporting an upset court ordered client or enthusiastically supporting staff in their work, Betty was always present and available. She was committed to the values of social justice. And, I can still hear her infectious laughter. I can't be sure, but I think Betty had to be the longest serving volunteer in our office. Her memory as a caring advocate for people and causes will always be with me. Debra Stein
