How can we even begin to list her involvement in this community?? Some highlights include the Waterloo Jayceettes, the Waterloo Downtown Council, My Waterloo Days Committee, the Alan Heart Foundation, Go Red for Women, The Ambassadors, and so much more!!

She loved to shop ... and spoil her granddaughter.

She loved to support and encourage us all.

She loved to see us all be the best versions of ourselves - like no other we may ever know!

People were her passion. This community was her passion.

WE were her passion! She loved us all!

Bette loved Christmas quite possibly the most. She had many favorite Christmas songs, but "Silent Night, Holy Night" was her favorite. She cherished the candlelight services tremendously. She believed as her father did, that Christmas isn't just a season, it's a spirit of joy, love, and kindness to share with everyone all year 'round. That's part of why Christmas was often a little difficult for her. She would talk often about how much she missed her dad (among others). Bette would want us all to cherish everyone in our life all the time - be fair to one another - forgive often - and, most importantly, don't sweat the small stuff!
