She rejoins in heaven her husband, Alfred Junior and her daughter, Susan Emma. Betty was born January 19, 1929 in Tremonton, Utah, the youngest child of Elias Andersen and Abigail Amanda Hansen. Betty grew up on the Andersen farm and orchards in Elwood, Utah. She graduated from Bear River High School in 1947. During her freshman year at Utah State College in Logan, Utah, she came to know Alfred Junior Glauser. They were married in the Logan LDS Temple on June 6, 1949. Betty and Al raised their family in Portland, Oregon where they lived for most of the next 34 years.

Betty experienced much joy in serving in many callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She and Al served a Church Education System mission in the Ogden area. Betty also enjoyed her associations in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and the Ogden Child Culture Club.
