Above all, Bette cherished her role as a dedicated and loving Homemaker to her entire family.

A woman of faith, she attended St. John the Evangelist Church in Attleboro, and made frequent visits to La Salette Shrine. She enjoyed time spent with her book club, and was passionate about her "Circle of Sistahs" team, raising money and awareness through the Attleboro Relay for Life events over the past five years, having been honored as the Keynote Speaker in 2019. Bette also cherished her time and memories made at her New Hampshire home with family, friends, and neighbors.

Cataldo of San Diego, CA and Kyle A. Cataldo of Boston, MA. She was the loving and adoring "MeMe" to Greyson Little and Nolen Little, her treasured grandchildren who were truly her best medicine.
