A fourth child was welcomed soon afterwards and the couple eventually settled in the Town of Eckville. Bette and her husband ran a Pilot Car Business for a few years. She also worked as a dispatch for different local businesses over the years. Bette could often be found at the Arena watching the local games, or volunteering. She wrote the Hockey News for the local newspaper for years. Bette loved going to Bingo every chance she got; and in the later years, she volunteered at the Eckville Manor House calling the Bingo.
Bette will be lovingly remembered by son, Randy and wife, Darlene, daughter, Carrie and partner, Greg Vandevelde, Greg Devereux and his wife, Debbie, grandchildren, Tasha, Kari Ann, Alyssa, William, Bradley, Christopher and Stace Molleken; as well as several in-law grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
