Our beloved matriarch, Bettie, passed away December 17, 2014, at the age of 87.
She is survived by her daughter, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. When she wasn't on the golf course, Bettie could be found attending plays at the Long Beach Playhouse, at Disneyland, working crossword puzzles, playing Rummikub and Tripoley, or reading with one of her beloved dogs. Above all, she loved spending time with her family who will miss her cooking, her laughter, her generosity of spirit, and her stubbornness.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Bettie's honor to the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, or Angel Flight West.

At 87 years, she was young at heart and had a wonderful life. She worked at a job she loved as a dispensing optician. She retired and began her passion for golf. She golfed twice a week and took lessons often. She wanted to “break 100”, but unfortunately never accomplished her goal. We took several vacations together to the central California coast enjoying fine dining, sightseeing, shopping and, of course, she played golf. She loved her dogs, having 8 Dobermans in her lifetime. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was an incredible cook with family gatherings and holidays at her house that were both delicious and fun. She loved playing Tripoley and Rummikub games as they were her favorites. It was hard to leave a visit with her without playing a game or two. She will be missed. Goodbye Mom.
