Obituary: Betty Pozgay

Betty Pozgay died on Oct. 28, 2011, in Prescott, Ariz. She died peacefully in her sleep after a lifetime of challenges, adventures and love.

After marriage, she lived in Provo and Cedar City, Utah, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Albuquerque, N.M., Laguna Niguel, Calif., Tucson and ultimately in Prescott. She was a steady and hardworking partner to Michael Pozgay, her husband of 48 years. She had a wonderful and irreverent sense of humor and was a model of grit and graceful persistence.
