Bettina Tom, age 57, of West Valley City, passed away February 17, 2021, in a care center in Orem.

Bettina was a strong-willed, outspoken, yet kind, sweet, and funny person who loved her children and grandchildren and would do anything for them. When she was younger, she enjoyed playing sports. She was unable to finish school because she had to take care of all of her younger siblings. She was very close with her father and often told stories about him. She helped anyone that she could, and was very traditional in her spiritual beliefs. She loved animals and her dog, Princess, was her pride and joy. Bettina was small, but packed a big punch!
