Bette was born Dec. 30, 1928, in Altoona, Pa., the daughter of James Withrow Sweezy and wife Agnes, nee Mitsko. On Aug. 4, 1960, she was united in marriage to John J. Quinn, and they were blessed to have 39 years together.

Although she had no children of her own, she loved her nieces and nephews dearly and cherished the time she spent with them.
