Bette-Ellen was born in Melville, SK on December 3, 1941. She and Harold met in Saskatoon and were married in 1961. She was a loyal and faithful member of the Jewish Community and sisterhood supporting and participating in all the events, projects and gatherings. She was an avid reader and enjoyed knitting and needlepoint. All will remember her quick wit and sense of humour. As her children were growing up she became the neighbourhood 'mom' to all their friends. Family was the centre of her life and she had a heart of gold. She will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her family and her many friends.
