Dan, Carol, Paul, Christine and Laura MY thoughts and prayers are with you today. You were blessed to have her in your lives. She left a legacy of caring

Dear Dan and Carol, we are thinking of you lots these past few days and Aunt Bette too. What a wonderful life she had and surrounded by family. So fortunate. I remember the last time I saw Bette she was with you in downtown Amesbury. But I mostly remember her from when I was a kid running around her yard with her Scottie dog, Pepper. You are in our thoughts.

Dear Paul, Dan and Carol I am saddened by the passing of Aunt Bette. Viewing the video was heartwarming with so many pictures of family. Fond memories of the smell of chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven. Rest peacefully Aunt Bette,
Love Donna

Dear Dan and Carol, Our deepest sympathy on the passing of Bette. I remember meeting Bette a few times and she was always baking the most delicious cookies. Bette was a very kind good hearted woman. A life well lived!!!

From all of us at The Greenwood Nursing & Rehabilitation Center we offer our sincere sympathy on the passing of Betty. She was a delightful person, always kind, polite and appreciative for any help she received. We will miss her friendly smile and we will remember her wearing her bright red framed eye glasses and her brightly colored clothing. We will also miss seeing her devoted family; Dan, Carol and Paul.
God Bless you all!

Bette you were a wonderful, caring person throughout your life. So glad we got to know you through Carol and Dan. I'll never forget your visit to Saudi Arabia in the late 1970's. I'm sure it was quite a thrill for you. You will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved you.
