Bette Pinkerton
A Noble Woman

Born in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 30, 1943.
Bette went to be with our Lord February 3, 2005

     Bernard Baruch once said: "During my eighty-seven years I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think." Bernard Baruch would have appreciated Bette. As an educator she specialized in teaching her students that a person's character is important and insisted that in her classrooms all students follow her golden rule: "Treat me and your fellow classmates with respect." One of her favorite sayings was that "if you can't something nice about another person, don't say anything at all." When confronted with a problem she liked to say, "we will just have to make lemonade out of these lemons." Many have confirmed that Bette didn't realize how many lives she had touched in a positive way.
     However, of all the praise we give Bette and the good she did as a teacher, she was even more important to those who loved her. We were all blessed to have known her. Bette's untimely passing has left us with a felling of emptiness, loneliness, and sadness.

A Teacher Takes a hand
Opens a mind     Touches a heart


Excerpts from the Holy Bible

Proverbs 31: 25 - 31

She puts on strength and honor as if they were her clothes. She can laugh at the days that are coming.

She speaks wisely. She teaches faithfully.

She watches over family matters. She is busy all the time.

Her children stand up and call her blessed. Her husband rises up, and he praises her.

He says, "Many women do noble things. But you are better than all the others."

Charm can fool you. Beauty fades. But a woman who has respect for the Lord should be praised.

Give her the reward she has earned. Let everything she has done bring praise to her at the city gate.

Matthew 7:12

"In everything, do to others what you would want them to do to you. This is written in the Law and in the Prophets"

We love you Nanny

Bette, we will always love you.
You will be missed.

Her loving family and dear friends
