Betty Jo McMahon Martin Thompson

February 22, 1930 - April 11, 2016

Betty Jo McMahon Martin Thompson, 86, entered into eternal peace on Monday, April 11, 2016 at the Ogden Mountain View Assisted Living Facility.  Betty was born on February 22, 1930, a daughter of the late George and Jewel McMahon.


She was married to Melvin Martin of Mesa, Arizona and later Vance Thompson of Dunn Center, North Dakota.


Betty is survived by her three children, Donald Martin, Sandra Martin Tomney (Ron), and Tod Thompson (Camile); six grandchildren, Ryan (Amy), Brandie, Don Jr., Jason (Penny), Mindy (Sam) and Dari.


She was preceded in death by her parents George and Jewel; one granddaughter, Christy Lynn; her siblings, Gordon, Paul, Thomas, Mildred, Roscoe and G.W.


“Death brings pain that time can only heal,

No words could ease what we truly feel,

But with God, her joy is eternally sealed,

And cherish her memories that death can’t steal

Lift up a smile for she is already in paradise”


The family wishes to sincerely thank all those at Mountain View who have kept a vigil watch over her during her time with you. You are truly awesome and are greatly appreciated.


No services will be conducted. The family will celebrate her life privately.

Don, Sandra, Todd and family. I loved her so much, last of the sibblings...She loved family so much. No, she wasn't perfect, but neither is anyone else. She lived life to the fullest. Between my Dad, Uncle Roscoe and her living in that mobil home in Ceres, life was never dull for me and my family. We still tell stories about the three of them, my kids make me laugh till I cry. So, I was Blessed to have time with my Auntie....I know you will miss her everyday....but the suffering is over, she is with God and all her loved ones. May God Bless and be with all of your family at this time. It's not easy losing our loved one. Hugs and Prayers to All of You.
