Bette Katherine Melton Obituary
March 13, 1922 - April 15, 2017 Bette Katherine Melton, longtime resident of Eagle Rock, has died of natural causes at the age of 95. She was known for the legendary annual Christmas displays on York Boulevard that she created with her late husband Wes for 5 decades. They were among the first to decorate their home, yard and even roof in the area. Bette started the design process a year before the display was created which often involved multiple scenes with toys she collected from garage sales. Bette was also a beloved local childcare provider whose children came back to see her for years after they had grown into adulthood. Always known as the life of the party from her gym to her senior center, often requesting to be called "Betty Boop," she never shied away from sporting whatever outfit might add to the festivity of the occasion. She will be greatly missed by her many friends and family. Bette is survived by her daughters Carolyn Egenes (son-in-law Roger), Connie Sullivan, and Cheryl Foliart (son-in-law Dan), son Mark Melton, stepson Ronald Melton (wife Sandi) and granddaughter Michele Sullivan. Services wil be held at Forest Lawn Glendale, Wee Kirk 'o the Heather Chapel, on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 at 2pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to la.bestfriends.org animal society.
