She is also survived by sister-in-law Millie Phelps of Cheshire, Mass., and many loving nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Bette loved to return “home” to visit North Adams and enjoyed class reunions and keeping in touch through Facebook. 

She was predeceased by her brother, Donald Phelps of Adams; sister and brother-in-law Dorothy and Mort Reimer; and in-laws Budd and Betty Dougherty of North Adams.
