Jean Betty Anderson, 95, of Fargo, ND, died peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at Sanford Palliative Care, Fargo, ND.

Jean Betty was born February 10, 1918 to H.C. and Claire Aamoth in Valley City, North Dakota. At the age of two the family moved to Fargo where she lived the rest of her life. She received her college degree in Family and Consumer Sciences from the University of Wisconsin at Madison after spending her first two years at the University of North Dakota. Her lifelong dream was to become a clothing designer, but that was not to be as Wisconsin did not offer that major. She was a member of Alpha Phi sorority. After college, Jean Betty was offered a fellowship at the University of Washington, but she declined to return home and marry.
