Betty was the oldest of three siblings, to younger brother Jim and sister Jacque. She graduated from Omak High School in Washington State. Her professional career included denture lab assistant in Seattle, Avon sales representative in Kennewick, transcriptionist for the Office of Personnel Management in Tri-Cities, business owner of the Home Office which provided professional typing services.

Betty was an avid reader of fiction novels and aspired to be a published author. In addition to reading, her hobbies included jigsaw puzzles, board games, house plants, and sewing. She loved animals particularly house pets. Betty had a warm and friendly personality. She was a loving mother, sister, and daughter who cherished her family above all else.
Working with Betty at DOE HR was a blessing and joy. I could tease her constantly and she would just smile that loving smile. Fondest Memory — February 20th is Hoodie Hoo Day. To celebrate you must go outside at noon and yell Hoodie Hoo as loud as possible to chase the winter away. (every week it was a new Obscure Holiday to celebrate. She kept insisting she would not be a part of it – but there she was, right next to me on the DOE ramp, yelling Hoodie Hoo. She made me smile everyday. I’m so sorry for your loss, she talked about you David to me a lot. She was a proud mama.
Betty and I worked together at DOE. I’ll always remember what a sweet and kind person she was. Prayers for all the family. ❤️
My condolences. I worked with Betty at DOE. She was very kind and always had a smile on her face. Wishing you peace at this time of loss.
I have been calling Betts for the last few days and couldn’t get through, I just went online to see if there was another way and found this posting. My heart is so sad right now, she was my friend for most of my life. I’m so sorry for your loss.
My sincere condolences to the Devere family. I’m so sorry for your loss. I worked with Betty at DOE. Betty was extremely friendly and helpful.
I was saddened to read that Betty passed away. I always had good memories of your Mom and Dad hanging around with them at those car shows. They were always such good company and made us laugh. Hope you are doing OK during this difficult time.
I am so sorry to read about the loss of Betty. I worked with her and she was such a lovely lady and she will be missed by many. May God Bless the family
