I worked for Bette many years ago and learned so much from her that I still carry with me today. The world has lost a great kind lady. I will carry you forever in my heart. RIP.

May God’s blessings surround and comfort your family during the loss of your Sister and Aunt. My prayers are that you will also find strength knowing she is with the Lord.

Dear Christian and Family,
I met Bette in 1976 when I first moved to Virginia Beach and she was always so personable and fun to be around. She simply adored you, Christian. We are thinking about you and your loss.

Bette invited me to Bow Creek Golf Course one Friday morning and before we finished the fourth hole she found courage to tell me i needed lessons (thanks Bette, I’m still laughing).
Bette taught me patience and how to hit that ball straight up the fairway. Thank you Bette, i remember you each time I swing at the golf ball now. She was a dear friend to me. We golfed every Friday for a year and had fun. Sincerely, Jack

We will always remember “Beautiful Bette” walking the beach early with her beloved dog! She was just as beautiful”inside”! She will be missed on 78th Street.

We have very fond memories of “Beautiful Bette” walking the beach early in the morning with her beloved dog! She was just as beautiful “inside”! She will be greatly missed on 78th Street.

when I first moved here to VB I loved playing golf with Bette and the ladies at CG&YC. I enjoyed my special talks about eating good food and about politics. When Bette had her stroke I visited with her. I have thought often of her and hoping she was doing OK and am now saddened over reading of her passing. To her loved nephew and family, I send my deepest sorrow. She will be missed. God bless. Catherine Clexton
