Betty Jo (Calvin) Welu Lidholm was born on April 19, 1928, in Marshall to Louis and Marian (Spielman) Calvin. She grew up and attended school in Marshall. Betty Jo was united in marriage to Irving Welu and the couple farmed and raised their family in rural Milroy. They also owned and operated the Miller’s Corner Store for a few years. In 1962, they moved to a Dairy Farm in Glenwood. After her children had grown, Betty Jo worked for Vernon’s Studio for many years doing editing and touch up work on photos. After Irving’s health prevented him from farming, he began doing property assessment. Betty Jo joined him with this and continued working as an Assessor after his death. She later took up square dancing and through this met her future husband, Earl Lidholm. The couple was married and moved to Cross Lake and later, Baxter. Betty Jo was very social. She belonged to the Eagles Club in Brainerd and volunteered as an Election Judge including the most recent election. She made homemade greeting cards and never forgot a family birthday. Betty Jo was a faithful member of the Catholic Church. Betty Jo died on Sunday, April 25, 2021, at the Essentia Health – St. Joseph Medical Center in Brainerd, MN. She is survived by children Douglas (and Terri) Welu of Terrace, MN, Greg (and Deb) Welu of Pequot Lakes, MN, Joyce (and Jeff) Johnson of Eden Prairie, MN, Rob (and Kathy) Welu of Glenwood, MN, eight grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. She was also survived by her siblings Jim Calvin, Barbara (and Norman) Paulson, Richard (and Carol) Calvin, and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands Irving Welu and Earl Lidholm and sister-in-law Gerry.
