Bette Newburg Obituary
Newburg, Bette
66, of Scotssdale passed away on October 25, 2015. Bette "Betsy" Newburg passed away Sunday, October 25 in Scottsdale. She lived and worked in the Valley as a realtor and homemaker for more than forty years. Betsy moved to Phoenix with her first husband, Jeff, shortly after they graduated from Indiana University in 1971. She has two children from that marriage - Jonathan (wife Erin; children William and James) and Jeffrey (wife Kelly, children Winifred and August) - who count themselves blessed beyond measure to be called her sons. She is also survived by her big sister Mary Ellen, from whom she was inseparable. She was married to William Kriskovich in 1991, from which marriage she received two stepsons - Michael (wife Madeleine, daughter Salem) and Matthew - both of whom she loved as her own. Betsy was a singularly caring woman, with a particular heart for the disadvantaged - be they human or otherwise. To know her as a mother, a wife, a business-person, a tennis-player, a friend - was to feel unconditionally loved. Her passion for life manifested in a profound gratitude to God, and we rest in the knowledge that she is at peace in Christ her Lord. In accordance with her wishes, her sons will spread her ashes over her beloved Lake Wawasee and at Indiana University come summer. A private memorial has been held; if you wish to honor her memory, hold your loved ones tight.
