Betty Ann Bielski

August 17, 1941 — July 11, 2023

Sioux City

Betty Ann (Beuslinch) Bielski, of Sioux City, Iowa entered the gates of heaven on Tuesday, July 11, 2023. A memorial mass will be held at 10:30am on Wednesday, July 19th at Nativity Church. Visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. and lunch will be served following mass.

Betty was born on August 17, 1942 in Sac City, Iowa, to mother Catherine Beuslinch. After moving to Sioux City, she attended Heelan High School and graduated in 1959. In Sioux City she met Marion Bielski and they married on May 25, 1960.

Betty’s pride and joy were here 5 children, 8 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Betty began her working years at St. Luke’s in the Maternity Ward, spent many years at Younkers downtown and was self-employed before eventually retiring.

Throughout her life, Betty was a beacon of love and joy who cherished her friends and family. She found boundless joy in laughter, which was infectious to those around her, and her signature hugs and vibrant spirit made everyone she encountered feel loved. One of her favorite pastimes was going to the movies, and she loved listening to Michael Bublé and Neil Diamond.

Betty was dedicated to her Catholic faith throughout her life, attending mass at Nativity Church every Saturday late afternoon, often with her daughter Kathryn.

Betty is survived by her 3 daughters, Stephanie (Ronald) Rens of Sioux City, Kathryn Babb of Sioux City, and Roxane (Mike) Juza of Oahu, Hawaii; 2 sons, Bryan (Kaye) Bielski of Hurricane, UT, and Brent (Sue) Bielski of Omaha, NE; 8 grandchildren: Ashley Schlag of New York, New York, Megan (Dan) Reel of Sioux City, Hannah Rens of Cocoa Beach, Florida, Dena Bielski of Sioux City, Maya Bielski of St. Louis, Missouri, Ryan Juza of Redwood City, California, Tyler Juza of Oahu, Hawaii, and Matthew Purwin of Highland Ranch, Colorado; 3 great-grandchildren, Harrison, Charlotte, and Fredrick Reel; and sister-in-law, Cookie (Bielski) Ober of Sioux City.

She was preceded in death by her mother; her husband, Marion Bielski in 2013; her brother, Earl; her brother-in-law, Jim Ober; and her nephew, Jamey Ober.

May her spirit live on through the countless lives she touched, inspiring us to be the best versions of ourselves, just as she was. In honor of her, let us embrace the legacy she leaves behind – a legacy of love, laughter, and an unwavering belief in the power of kindness.
