I will always carry a piece of Bette in my heart! I had the joy of knowing her in her later years, she had the most animated faces I’ve seen! She was a sweetheart and I will miss her dearly! Rest in heaven miss bette !

One of my fondest memories with mom was all the times we played Bingo, whether at the Catholic church hall back in the days, at her clubhouse in Leesberg, the condo in Cocoa Beach, and even in the nursing home. She loved playing and we had so much fun together. We also loved playing scrabble for a season and loved playing cards whenever we could. Music was a must for mom her entire life. One of Ben's favorite memories with mom was when we surprised her and took her to see her 2nd love, Ricky Van Shelton in concert. She was like a teenager and dad did not exist at that time, even though he sat next to her. My mother was beautiful inside and outside. i miss her dearly and always will.

Love Nancy

As a little girl, when I was fortunate enough to go there for a sleepover, I was fascinated by how my cousins were cutting the colorful circles from the Wonder Bread wrappers and I was so excited when Aunt Bette let me do that! She was a happy lady. Godspeed Aunt Bette

As a child, I had so much fun dancing when Aunt Bette played Chubby Checker and other dance tunes. I also remember her love for Ray Charles and Johnny Cash. Aunt Bette was a great listener and helped me through some troubled times in my teens. Most of all, I remember her laugh and beautiful smile. I’m confident she is laughing and dancing in Heaven.
