Bette was a very good friend and will be sadly missed. She was very helpful in the community. If not for Bette, I would have never made it trough algebra.

Oh my. Bette, the sweetest girl in my 1975 PHS class. Bette was always just a joy to talk with, to visit- My most sincere condolences to her husband Troy and Bette's family.

"Hubba hubba!" was her favorite phrase then, as she was the 1975 Poteau High Valedictorian

Our world is more dim with her passing; I've thought about dozens of fond memories of her since learning of her premature death.
