Bette gave her heart to being a mother, but over the years also held jobs as varied as a telephone operator, farmer, cake decorator, newspaper delivery driver and manager of two assisted living facilities. 

She worked hard with her hands, but also created beautiful things with them like needlework, sewing, ceramics and every 1970s arts and crafts fad. 

She taught Sunday School for many years and had been involved in ministry at the Fond du Lac Assembly of God Church in earlier years. 

She enjoyed all things German, including three trips there, fishing, meeting friends and being the life of the party.
