A Noble Woman

Bernard Baruch once said: "During my eighty-seven years I have
witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none
of them has done away with the need for character in the individual
or the ability to think." Bernard Baruch would have appreciated
Bette. As an educator she specialized in teaching her students that
a person's character is important and insisted that in her
classrooms all students follow her golden rule: "Treat me and
your fellow classmates with respect." One of her favorite
sayings was that "if you can't something nice about another
person, don't say anything at all." When confronted with a
problem she liked to say, "we will just have to make lemonade
out of these lemons." Many have confirmed that Bette didn't
realize how many lives she had touched in a positive way.
However, of all the praise we give Bette
and the good she did as a teacher, she was even more important to
those who loved her. We were all blessed to have known her. Bette's
untimely passing has left us with a felling of emptiness,
loneliness, and sadness.
