Betty E. Hedison Obituary
Exeter, NH - Betty Eleanor (Wohler) (Yeaw) Hedison passed away on May 23, 2018 after a period of declining health. Betty was born on October 19, 1934 in Greenfield MA to John C. and Ruth (Kemp) Wohler. She graduated as Valedictorian from Brattleboro High School in 1952, where she received honors in French and Latin and the D.A.R. Citizenship award. Betty was selected as a community ambassador for the Experiment in International Living. She lived with a family in Copenhagen and traveled throughout post-war Europe. In 1953 she was appointed Executive Secretary of the Vermont Association of Insurance Agents.

Betty married Arthur "Bud" Yeaw in 1954 and moved to Poultney, VT. She was active in the Methodist Church and Eastern Star, where she rose to Grand Matron. Bud's State Police career brought a move to East Montpelier, VT, where she was involved in many school activities, the Old Brick Church, and as a Cub Scout Den Mother.

After the family moved to Derby VT, she worked in insurance, a bilingual project, and then in community mental health services. She served in many capacities in the American Legion Auxiliary. Betty and Bud were active supporters of North Country Union High School sports teams.

After Bud's untimely death in 1983, Betty settled in Hampton, NH and returned to work in insurance before her retirement. She married Kazar (Larry) Hedison in 1989. They enjoyed the outdoors and traveling before his death in 1995. Betty continued to travel extensively around the world. In 2010, she moved to Riverwoods in Exeter, NH. Betty was an avid fan of Boston sports teams. She made lifelong friends wherever she lived, a testimony to her curiosity, caring, and generosity of spirit.

Betty is predeceased by her parents and brothers, John and William Wohler, her husbands, sisters- and brothers-in-law, son-in-law, Gary Marsella, and granddaughter Rebecca Marsella. She is survived by her children, Jeffrey Yeaw and his wife Liz of Williamsburg, VA, Deborah Yeaw Marsella of Dracut, MA, Glenn Yeaw and his wife Dr. Silke Bernert of Cincinnati, OH, and her step-sons Bruce and David Hedison of Boston, MA. She is also survived by her sister, Sylvia Roobian, four grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

Graveside services will be held at 11 AM on Saturday, June 9, 2018 in the Baker Cemetery, Sweet Pond Rd., Guilford, VT. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 PM on Sunday, June 10 in the Great Bay Room at Riverwoods Exeter, 7 Riverwoods Dr., Exeter, NH 03833.
