Elizabeth (Bette) J. Boise, age 91, passed away at home surrounded by her family on July 9, 2013. Born in Sherburne, NY on November 16, 1921 Bette was the daughter of Charles and Ellen White. Along with her parents, sister, and brother, Bette was predeceased by her loving husband of 43 years George. George was the love of her life and they shared wonderful memories together. Once again, they will be joined together forever. Bette leaves behind her cherished children; daughter's and son's-in-law, Marcia & Wayne Martin; Mary Ellen & Joseph Guiliani; and son, Mark Boise & girlfriend Stacy. Also left behind with wonderful memories of their "Nana" are six grandchildren and spouses; Mary Beth & John Scalzo; Diane & Frank LoGalbo; Denise & Mike Darling; Theresa & John Havlick; Mark Boise & girlfriend Alecia; and Ryan Boise. Bette was also blessed with six great-grandchildren; Brooke, Isabella, Darren, Francesca, Nicholas, and Ryan. Hunter also had a special place in Bette's life. Many other special family members also include; George & Rita Boise; Orilla Kindig (deceased); Chuck & Kate Kindig; Patty & Dave Hackenberg; Vicky Alexandra &Jack; Tim Gould; Terry & Barbara Gould; Barbara Galvin; Gerard Capraro; and Howard & Susie Boise. Over the years, Bette had so many special friends in life, too numerous to list. She appreciated each and every one of you. Bette graduated from Norwich High School. After meeting her husband, Bette began to travel with her husband and family for construction work throughout NYS. Little did Bette know that her life's work would come from this. Bette was honored on several occasions for the work she did selling heavy truck equipment throughout NYS. Known as the "peanut lady" her flair for public relations made her well known and beloved from town to town. If you spoke of Bette, you did so with a smile on! It was only about a year or so ago that Bette stopped working… she truly loved it, and they loved her. Throughout her career, Bette worked for Bill DeLia construction, Credle construction, Corts Trucking and most recently, Wayne's Welding. Bette was also on many Highway Boards/ Committees throughout her career. A special thank you to the following medical professionals that helped Bette throughout her illness; Dr. Brownstein; Hospice Palliative Care, especially, Bonnie, Marianne, Julie, Justin, Ann, Christina, Kelly, Jill, and all of the caring staff. "Mourn not too long that she is gone; but rejoice forever that she was…" In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Hospice and Palliative Care, 4277 Middle Settlement Road, New York 13413 Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.
