Betty Mae Bennett

30 January, 1925 - 31 July, 2014

Betty was born in her grandmother, Grismondi's house in North Denver, Colorado. She was schooled for a few early years in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parochial School, then on to North High until she graduated. She worked until she married and started a family. She attended Long Beach City College for two years and started a part time vocation in sales.

She and her husband, Warren, were married for over sixty-three years, during which time they raised five sons and four daughters, Peter, Lynne, Michael, Noel, Carol, Douglas, Jeffrey, Christopher and Mary. They in turn issued twenty-one grandchildren, who had twenty-five great-grandchildren, who had one great great-granchild. Needless to say, her major love was her family. Her exemplary motherhood was shown throughout her life, as the people who knew her would testify.

Her passion in living included all our world has to offer a tourist. At home it was local travel and beach bathing. For exercise, she loved dancing and gardening, but to relax she liked working crossword puzzles and reading mystery novels.

Memorial Service is at Trinity United Methodist Church, 5730 South Street, Lakewood, CA 90713, Saturday, August 16th at 11:00 a.m. Celebrate her life! Please sign the guest book at www.presstelegram.com/obits.
