PROVO - On July 5, 2006, Betty Lou Thomas Glade quietly slipped away from people and a planet she loved very much. She succumbed to the rare drug reaction, TEN.
Betty was born to Leland Stanford Thomas and Mary Ann Donaldson on Jan. 4, 1924 in Scofield, Carbon County. She, her brothers and sister grew up on their parents' ranch, where they were surrounded by nature's breathtaking beauty and all the animals children could ever dream of owning. Under Scofield skies, young Betty came to a firm knowledge that God knew and loved her. This certainty guided her throughout her life.
She attended school in Scofield. When Betty was 14, she and her cousin, Margie Whalen, went to Horace Mann Junior High in Salt Lake City, where the two lived with Margie's older sister, Lavada, and discovered life in the big city. Betty declined an opportunity to have a full circle scholarship to an eastern music conservatory to become a concert pianist because she wanted to be a wife and mother and believed that the goals were incompatible.
After graduating from Carbon High in Price, Betty worked to earn money for a mission. Sister Thomas served faithfully in the North Central States LDS mission, where she met Elder Kenneth Preston Glade, whom she married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on June 10, 1949. They are the parents of five children.
Together, Betty and Preston made homes in Randolph, Downey and Arimo, Idaho; Salt Lake City, Logan, Brigham City and Provo while Preston taught for the LDS Church.
Betty was the rarest of homemakers; she could usually be found at home. She was never actually seen in a cape, leotard, and tights, but she always managed to fly to her family's rescue. We don't know how. Betty considered very seriously the sacred callings of wife and mother. Any extra attention her children paid to Betty during her illness was merely a reflection of our parents' example.
She served in the LDS church in many and various callings including seminary teacher at Intermountain Indian School, stake MIA music, teacher in Sunday school, relief society, and primary organizations, stake primary president, and faithful visiting teacher. Betty polished her testimony daily through prayer and scripture study. Its glow revealed a path that allowed her to moved forward confidently when dark days and threatened nights confronted her.
In December 2004 after a tragic incident during a hospitalization, Betty decided that she wanted to continue living even though her mortal existence could never be as it had once been. She recognized that compromised mobility, frustration and pain would inevitably occur, but she wanted very much to endure to the end gracefully. Her family's lives will be forever blessed by her example.
The family gratefully recognizes the initial lifesaving efforts of four physicians: Nathan C. Dean, Mark K. Goddard, Robert S. Price and George E. Thomsen. The family also wishes to express heartfelt appreciation to the following individuals and facilities that worked so hard to provide our mother with the best possible quality of life according to her wishes; their diligence and hard work were only exceeded by her own.

Breding, Lincoln Church, Cottonwood Hospital, Linda Cox, Dr. Alan Davis, Kierstin Sandberg Eliason, Liane Emmett, Regan Fails, Vanessa Feinauer, Jeremy Gaylord, Dr. Arasu Gopinath, Steve Hague, Natalie Harr, Joey Henderson, Dr. Richard T.

She is survived by children, Carol Sue Broadbent, Kenneth P. Glade, LeeAnn Glade, Velma Lisa Leftwich (Craig), and James George Glade (Lisa).

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
