Obituary for Betty (Treur) Kolding

Betty (Treur) Kolding, 66, passed away peacefully with both her daughters by her side, after a lengthy battle with breast cancer, on August 13, 2018.
Her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and prayers of family, friends, and many supporters carried her through. She is now with the Lord, and dancing with the Angels.

She married Michael Kolding on March 17, 1972. They lived in Santa Maria where they raised their two children. Betty worked as an American Greetings card Merchandiser so she could be home raising her girls, working her own hours while they were in school. She was a very fun loving hands on mother, continuing on as a wonderful loving grandmother. She taught us how to live life fully, passionately, bravely, and courageously, just like she lived hers. She will be dearly missed. She was the best mom, Bama/Oba (grandmother) and friend. The best ever laughters were the ones shared with her, the best ever vacations and family gatherings were with her, the best stories were read and told by her, and the best hugs and kisses were given by her. Now she is the purest and most beautiful Angel.
Betty was also an active Charter member at Heritage Evanglical Presbyterian Church, she loved her church family dearly.
Betty was preceded in death by her beloved parents. She is survived by her husband of 46 years Michael Kolding, two daughters and their husbands; Catriena and Eddy Lyons of Santa Maria, Michelle and Adam Tyczynski of Arroyo Grande, six grandchildren; Joshua and Justin Lyons of Santa Maria, Kaden, Dylan, Tierra and Tanner of Arroyo Grande.
