Bette O'Brien Obituary

 

Bette Bennett was born September 13, 1929, in Scottsbluff, Nebraska to Ralph and Florence Bennett. Bette was the oldest and loving sister to her siblings, Beth, Shirley, Gary, and Don.

Bette grew up in southern Idaho and met William O’Brien as a teenager. They were married March 4, 1946, for 63 years, until Bill’s passing in 2009.

In 1954 Bette and Bill, and their two children, moved to Nevada and onto Edmonds, Washington in 1957. Bette was employed as a front-end manager of a local grocery chain for 10 years. She finished her career with the Edmonds School District where she spent 14 years as the Legal Records Manager for Special Services.

Bette and Bill first came to Sunflower Resort in Arizona in 1991, to spend winters, quickly feeling at home. They treasured their many friends at Sunflower aways enjoying ballroom dancing and the wonderful music. For the past six years, Bette has resided with her daughter and son-in-law in Sun City, Arizona.

Bette is preceded in death by her loving husband Bill and her son Barry. She is survived by her daughter Karen Cooper & husband Jack, granddaughter Shannon Cooper & husband Beaker, grandson Nathan O’Brien & wife Rachel, one great grandchild, daughter-in-law Lu O’Brien Lee, sister Shirley Hill, many nieces, nephews, other extended family, and friends.

Bette passed away in her home, at 94 (and a half), surrounded by her family who will love and miss her forever.
