Today I have the honor of reintroducing you to Elizabeth Bargala, who most of you know by Betsy. On a crisp wintery dry day of October 25, 1978, Sonny Bargala and Elizabeth James gave birth to Betsy.

She grew up with 10 siblings: Alex Williams, Lance Butler, Ryan “Luke” Williams, Kelli Butler, Nekole Williams, Sunshine Bargala, Madeline Bargala, Melody Sykes, Jennifer Snyder, Dani Bargala-Sanchez. For the last 25 years she shared her life with Virgil Spencer and together they raised 7 kids: Sophia, James, Candie, Khloe, Betsy, Brenda, Xander. Betsy was proud of her culture and her tribe. Through the duration of her life, she’s had plenty different roles throughout the tribe. From being a Casual Worker for the tribe, VGD Attendant at Muckleshoot Bingo, a Finance Auditor for Muckleshoot Bingo, a Cocktail Waitress at the Muckleshoot Casino, a Receptionist, Admin Assistant, Executive Assistant, Director of Court Services. Betsy always enjoyed make up and dressing up. Her family was especially important to her. She loved coming together with her family for holidays, for birthday celebrations, or just to sit and talk. Betsy was recently called home to join her mom Elizabeth, her sister Nekole, her aunt Ona and Uncle Moke. The ones to carry her memory is her parents, her aunts, her uncle, her siblings, her lifetime companion, her kids and all her nieces and nephews.
