Bette Rae Morehead

April 2nd, 1941 - March 11th, 2024

Bette Rae Morehead, 82, of Littleton, CO, passed away peacefully on the morning of Monday, March 11th, with family by her side until the end. The Littleton High School graduate (1959) succumbed to the effects of dementia while residing at Assisted Living on Broadway Memory Care where she received absolutely wonderful care from their professional and tireless staff.


In 1964, Bette married Byron "Skip" Morehead, a Denver-native and Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. While based in Cherry Point, NC in the fall of 1968, the two welcomed their only child Wade M. Morehead. Their paths would ultimately lead back to Littleton, CO in 1977, where they were among the first 40 families in a planned community called Ken Caryl Ranch where Bette lived for the next 40 years. 


Bette worked at Johns Manville Inc. for nearly 25 years in the Accounts Receivable department and was also employed by Martin Marietta in the 1960s. She loved volunteering her time and served on various Boards, including the Ken Caryl Ranch Master's Association and the Denver Police Department. Widowed in January of 1988, she retired right after the turn of the century. 


The one undeniable fact about Bette is that she touched the lives of so many.  She loved to go out to socialize and spend time with others. So many consider Bette a friend because she cared about people and she had the incredible ability to know someone's life history after just one meeting.  Bette also found joy as a very talented artist who used a variety of methods to paint and sketch beautiful pictures of Colorado's landscape and wildlife. 


She is survived by her two sisters Ann Page and Cathy Sams, as well as her son Wade, his wife, and their three children.


Services for Bette will be at Fort Logan Cemetery on Friday, March 29th at 1:30 p.m. (Staging area A).
