Betty Backstrom

“Managing a Fair on High”

The Pierce County Fair will always be known for being a fun family experience, shared by thousands each year. Many of those memories were because of a tireless individual.

It is now time to rest for Betty Backstrom, Fair Manager, Friend and Mentor.

Betty not only had a large, blood related family, but had an even larger extended Fair Family. All are sharing in the loss of someone so giving, we also share her love of life. As we travel our separate ways, we are extensions of what she brought into this world.

Rest in Peace…
